Many organizations are not large enough to support in-house counsel consistently. We position the firm as a fractional General Counsel so that your practice has a seasoned attorney “on staff.” Our firm can also serve as backup for in-house counsel when workload temporarily exceeds capacity. From the very start of your organizations healthcare practice or during mergers or acquisitions that require it to reorganize, we can provide deep expertise on the legal aspects of corporate structure requirements Once established, organizations must work to stay in constant compliance with healthcare regulations, but even when they are apparently successful in doing so, unexpected challenges can occur when government regulators ask difficult questions, when contract issues arise, or provider licensing or related problems require an adversarial hearing before a state medical board.
More generally, as fractional General Counsel, we are available both to help your organization through crises or complex and demanding changes, or to pick up the slack on routine legal business if your in-house counsel is preoccupied dealing with major issues. As fractional General Counsel, I am in continual contact with your organization, providing high levels of legal advice and guidance on corporate governance and healthcare issues. Our ability to communicate effectively with physician CEOs, human resources managers, financial officers, and other leaders of both the clinical and business teams makes us an unique asset to your organization.
