The healthcare industry is subject to legal complexities in an aggressive governmental enforcement environment. Healthcare providers face challenges from stricter and ever changing regulations, consolidations in the industry and hazardous liability issues. The Affordable Care Act and the creation of Exchanges have only exacerbated these issues as the industry continues its rapid change. Conner & Winters attorneys know the healthcare industry. The extensive experience of our healthcare team allow us to provide significant expertise in all areas of the healthcare industry – we have several healthcare partners who have practiced healthcare law in excess of twenty-five years bringing substantial experience and a depth of knowledge to the practice. Further, our team brings experience from having worked in healthcare settings as nurses and other ancillary healthcare providers so the lawyers have a practical understanding of operational requirements and management needs.
