Health Law

The health care industry is currently the largest sector of the U.S. economy, and arguably, the most heavily regulated. Health law is a burgeoning specialty area, which primarily focuses on regulatory and policy issues facing health care providers such as hospitals, treatment centers, clinics, doctors, and pharmaceutical companies. However, due to its complexity, health law intersects and overlaps with many other areas of law including medical malpractice, personal injury, and insurance law.
