Physician Organizations

Physicians and physician organization issues present one of the most complex areas in health care law. The ability to understand and work with the physician component of health care is essential to effective counsel and to the success of many business arrangements. Transactions between physicians and other health organizations involve a high level of economic activity, while transpiring under the burden of extraordinary regulation.
