Our Clients

Katten counsels a variety of clients involved in the development, delivery and financing of health care services, including hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, hospice and nursing home chains, imaging centers, physical therapy providers, ambulatory surgical centers, physician groups, managed care entities, insurers, life science companies, private equity funds, and private equity-backed health care portfolio companies.

Our Services

Katten offers one of the largest health care practices in the nation—both in terms of the number of practitioners and the scope of representation. The integrated nature of our practice allows us to provide timely, practical and strategic advice in virtually all areas of law affecting the health care industry. We counsel health care clients on everything from medico-legal and ethical concerns to complex corporate and finance issues. Our experience encompasses transactions of all types, regulatory compliance, fraud and abuse counseling, tax exemption issues, antitrust, financings for taxable and tax-exempt entities, reimbursement, and a variety of other issues specific to the health care industry.

We have represented our health care clients in hundreds of transactions, and as a result can provide guidance on the numerous ownership, governance, reimbursement, financing, tax exemption, management, operational regulatory, contractual, medical staff, charitable trust and antitrust issues inherent in these transactions. Katten attorneys help clients structure their affiliations, business transactions, marketing practices and compensation arrangements to meet state and federal regulatory requirements and achieve sustainable, beneficial results.

Katten's Health Care team guides clients through the highly complex and constantly evolving array of federal, state and local laws and regulations. We provide comprehensive, insightful and cost-effective advice on regulatory compliance and enforcement issues—from compliance plan development to the defense of False Claims Act allegations.

We combine deep knowledge of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) with broader experience in insurance regulation, technology law, employee benefits, litigation and liability management to deliver tailor-made, cost-effective solutions to health information privacy and security issues.

As health care has evolved into one of the largest and most intensely regulated industries, Katten's Health Care practice has grown in tandem to address all of the business and legal challenges confronting our clients that operate in this space. Our attorneys bring a broad base of experience and a deep understanding of the business and practice of health care to providing health care-related legal services—whether a client needs to develop a business model that clears regulatory hurdles, respond to a government investigation or negotiate a complicated transaction.
