Office Information

Baker Donelson's Raleigh/Research Triangle office was launched in 2021 when a team of respected and recognized health law attorneys joined the Firm. It has since expanded to include attorneys experienced in additional areas including financial services, energy, and general corporate advice and counsel.

With its thriving business ecosystem that encompasses numerous industries, the Research Triangle is a vital player in the economy of the Southeastern U.S. and beyond. As a leading law firm in the region and nationally, Baker Donelson has long served this dynamic area with attorneys licensed in North Carolina but based in offices outside the state.

Baker Donelson's Raleigh/Research Triangle team includes a group of professionals with deep experience in health care law. Their seasoned counsel helps clients navigate the constantly evolving legal and regulatory landscape facing health care providers. Their range of experience includes advising on regulatory, compliance and operational issues; providing guidance on health care reimbursement and Medicaid and Medicare compliance and enrollment; responding to government investigations and enforcement actions; defending against regulatory challenges; representing providers in matters before licensing boards and other regulatory bodies; handling Certificate of Need (CON) filings and related litigation; and counseling on HIPAA compliance, privacy, and information security matters.

Clients across the full spectrum of the health care industry benefit from this team's insight and experience. They represent health systems, hospitals, physician practices, long term care providers, behavioral health agencies, home health agencies, hospice providers, suppliers, licensed professionals, health IT and billing vendors, and numerous other health care entities.

Team members also assist clients on complex financial services issues, especially corporate insolvency, distressed lending, restructuring and bankruptcy, and Chapter 11 matters, counseling clients including secured and unsecured creditors and creditors’ committees in reorganizations and liquidations nationwide, as well as purchasers and sellers of debt and assets in foreclosure sales, Article 9 sales, and Chapter 11 363 sales.
