Astute Attorneys Help Doctors Starting a Medical Practice in Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix business and health care lawyers offer knowledgeable counsel

Medical offices can include one or a number of physicians, plus nurses and other medical providers and employees. Regardless of their size, they can benefit from legal counsel helping to set them up, draft necessary agreements and resolve disputes. Law Offices of Donald W. Hudspeth, P.C. of Phoenix, Arizona has helped medical providers who are solo proprietors, partnerships, family businesses and start-up practices to form and maintain their businesses.

How we help with healthcare business law issues and medical practice formation

The process of starting a medical business, whether it is a private practice, physician group, hospital or other type of healthcare facility, is a complex one. As with any business, one must choose the type of business organization, such as a limited liability company or corporation, that best serves the owners’ needs. One must also meet various state health care licensing and regulatory requirements before opening for business and develop an appropriate business model. We will sit down with you to determine what best serves your needs and guide you through all these issues, whether you’re launching a new venture or considering changes at an existing organization.

How we help with physicians’ contracts and healthcare employment agreements

A crucial factor in any medical practice is the relationship between the entity itself and the individual healthcare professionals and other employees who comprise it. We help make this relationship and the general functioning of the medical practice clearer and easier by drafting:

  • Employment and independent contractor agreements with physicians and other medical professionals
  • Employment agreements with other employees, such as office staff
  • Contracts for temporary personnel and service providers

We cover a multitude of issues, such as insurance and billing code issues, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) questions, explaining complex regulations and carefully tailoring our advice to your particular circumstances and objectives.

How we help with medical and healthcare-related disputes and lawsuits

  • Even the most careful medical practitioners may find themselves engaged in business or professional disputes that can’t be resolved amicably or without the intervention of legal counsel. We pride ourselves on our ability to help businesses manage these disagreements and achieve successful results. While we have ample experience litigating in both state and federal court, on both the trial and appellate levels, as well as in small claims court, we are committed to finding practical solutions for clients. These methods of alternative dispute resolution often are more cost-effective:
  • Arbitration — This is a private means of litigation in which the cases are decided by one or more arbitrators chosen by the parties themselves. This process often helps to keep sensitive issues private and is typically less expensive and time-consuming, than going to court.
  • Mediation — This is a means of resolving a dispute without litigation, in which a single mediator chosen by the parties evaluates the case and helps the parties reach a settlement.

Not only have we appeared before arbitrators and mediators as advocates for our own clients, but we have served as arbitrators and mediators in disputes brought by other attorneys, and are ready to serve you in either capacity.
