We advise clients on the formation and restructuring of healthcare entities as well as acquisitions, mergers, and strategic affiliations. Our attorneys in Rapid City and western South Dakota are involved in physician practice acquisitions and joint ventures and routinely negotiate and draft employment contracts, lease and personal service agreements, and administrative contracts.
We advise group practices and healthcare organizations on issues related to federal and state healthcare laws and regulations, including Medicare false claims, Stark Law, Anti-kickback compliance, HIPAA, and a variety of reform initiatives. We also assist clients in matters relating to licensure status and accreditation issues with the South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners and other licensure boards. Our work includes developing, updating, and assessing compliance programs and counseling compliance officers, executives, and governing boards of healthcare entities, on corporate governance, marketing, and sales practices, audits, and internal investigations.
