Increased regulation and rapid change within the health care industry presents significant challenges for all health care organizations, from hospitals to medical research institutions to medical device and supply manufacturers and distributors.

Foster Pepper’s health care practice is a principal focus of our firm and consistently recognized as a top practice by U.S. News-Best Lawyers. The firm’s attorneys are experienced in virtually all areas of health care and life sciences law, including:

  • Governance and organization of public and private hospitals
  • Human subjects research
  • Medical staff issues
  • Regulatory compliance
  • State and federal tax and tax-exempt issues
  • Structuring joint ventures
  • Transactions

Attorneys in our health care practice represent hospitals at each level of the certificate of need process and in the judicial review of planning decisions. We also represent hospitals in medical staff membership and clinical privilege controversies. Foster Pepper is proud to list several hospitals and the Association of Washington Public Hospital Districts as clients, and we have served as special counsel to the Washington State Hospital Association. Our attorneys also have experience working with academic medical centers, clinical laboratories and pathology practices, physician practices, imaging centers, behavioral health providers, and long-term care facilities, among others.
