Health Law

Seyfarth Shaw’s Health Law Practice Group is a nationally recognized team of attorneys recognized by Legal 500.

In addition to attorneys who specialize in health law, members of the team are also drawn from each of the firm’s departments—Litigation, Corporate, Labor and Employment, Employee Benefits and Real Estate — in all ten of our U.S. offices, in order to provide a coordinated and comprehensive full-service health law practice. Our client base is broad in scope, as we have represented numerous for profit and non-profit hospitals and health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, physician groups, academic medical institutions, managed care companies, healthcare technology and service companies, continuing care retirement communities, biotechnology, medical device, pharmaceutical companies, and providers of debt and equity capital in the healthcare space in regulatory, transactional and litigation matters. 

The legal and business issues arising in the healthcare, biotechnology, medical device, and pharmaceutical industries are unique. As highly regulated industries, these companies face complex challenges with respect to their business operations. Faced with an ever-changing array of new legislation, regulations and pressures that must be balanced with ongoing business challenges and opportunities, such companies need legal representation from attorneys who have the broad based background and experience necessary to help them meet these challenges.

At Seyfarth Shaw, through the coordinated services of our interdisciplinary Health Law Practice Group, we apply the focused health industry experience of attorneys in all of our departments, while keeping an eye on the broader effects of healthcare regulation and compliance on day-to-day operations and long-term strategies. This unique blend of depth and breadth enables us to provide legal solutions and results that support our clients’ overall objectives. Members of our team have experience working as inside counsel, outside general counsel and special counsel to health, biotechnology, medical device and pharmaceutical clients, and on behalf of customers and consumers of healthcare products and services.

Health law is one of the most complex and universal of legal disciplines. Healthcare concerns affect virtually every business, organization and individual. In order to be successful in an era of great change, healthcare businesses and their customers require legal advisors with the knowledge, background, experience and resources necessary to provide sophisticated, coordinated counsel. Seyfarth Shaw’s Health Law Practice Group meets these expectations.
