A growing segment of our business law practice involves representation of health care entities—hospitals, clinics, and physicians. Because of the unique, highly specialized nature of this area of law, our Shreveport health care lawyers represent clients across the country.

The complexity of relationships among providers and insurers, and the constant financial pressure toward cost containment that characterize our nation's health care system, are two of the leading contributors to legal disputes. We represent all types of healthcare entities and individual providers experiencing disputes regarding:

  • Business practices, including payment of claims and governance issues
  • Employment contracts, staffing privileges, and workforce reduction
  • Insurance issues, including arbitrary termination from HMOs or MCOs
  • Health care fraud claims
