Health Law

The Health Law practice of O'Connell & Aronowitz represents clients with a national focus.

Devoted almost exclusively to the representation of health care and social services providers, we also represent many national and state-wide provider trade associations. Our clients include hospitals, nursing homes, clinical laboratories, home health care agencies, adult care and assisted living facilities, diagnostic and treatment centers, behavioral health providers, DME and respiratory suppliers, physician practices, ancillary health care practitioners and other providers.

Our attorneys actively represent clients in all types of healthcare litigation at the state and federal level.

This includes complex Medicare, Medicaid and private payer audits, fraud and abuse, false payments, Article 78 and business litigation. We also represent providers in professional discipline and regulatory enforcement proceedings before all federal and state licensing and regulatory agencies.

Our transactional practice assists in for-profit and not-for-profit enterprise development, corporate formation, development of senior housing, financing, licensure, mergers and acquisitions and real estate matters. Our attorneys frequently serve as General Counsel, as well as specialized compliance or reimbursement counsel. We provide compliance training for Boards of Directors and staff, and are active in health care policy development.

Our attorneys have been instrumental in precedent-setting federal and state litigation, including the successful representation of the hospital industry in two appeals before the United States Supreme Court and in numerous challenges to state statutes and regulations. Two senior partners in our Health Law practice are among the 1% of the nation's attorneys who are listed in The Best Lawyers in America. They have been listed for over 20 years.
