Health Care Leader

Philip R. Frankfort

HolmstromKennedy has been representing the health care industry for over thirty-five years – from hospitals to physician group practices, other provider entities and individual practitioners. The issues facing health care providers on a daily basis include highly complex laws and regulatory schemes such as fraud and abuse (Anti-Kickback, Stark, CMPs), and HIPAA privacy and security that change and evolve constantly. Our Health Care Group has been there every step of the way as these laws have been implemented and government regulators have enunciated interpretations and enforcement priorities. We counsel health care providers daily on transactions and strategies that must be carried out carefully in order to comply with these dynamic and fluid laws. Because health care providers also face all of the operational challenges of any business, attorneys from all of HolmstromKennedy’s practice groups bring their knowledge and experience to assist our health care clients – from employment, privacy and security, business transactions, construction and real estate, technology licensing and development, to litigation.
