Healthcare Law Practice

The healthcare industry has witnessed dramatic growth, with cost containment and access as primary concerns. The trends of developing primary care physician groups, shifting risk to healthcare providers, and integrating healthcare networks all dramatically affect the industry and create new financial and legal challenges. Jones Waldo understands and addresses these trends, helping our clients prepare themselves for the changes ahead. Our firm maintains a vigorous healthcare practice in the United States. Our healthcare clients range from a member of the nation’s largest healthcare insurance group, an internationally known corporate owner of hundreds of hospitals, an association of independent pharmacists, and a nationally known healthcare consulting firm, to local providers of healthcare services.
