Key Benefits Of Working With Us

  • We counsel post-acute and long-term care providers on every aspect of their business, from real estate and tax to health information technology (HIT) and litigation, and everything in between.

    Efficient collaborators, we proactively spot and help resolve potential issues across your company, and strive to identify opportunities that could generate new sources of revenue. We understand the national and regional markets and key strategies for accomplishing your business goals.

  • Our team represents post-acute and long-term care providers before national and state regulatory agencies on a daily basis. As a result, we know the agencies’ perspectives and use that knowledge to advance your company’s goals while conforming with regulatory requirements. Our lawyers are also skilled in investigating and solving potential compliance problems.

    We are particularly adept in counseling national, regional and local clients on Certificate of Public Need (COPN)/Certificate of Need (CON), survey and certification, licensure and HIPAA matters.

  • Navigating payor rules requires deep knowledge and practical experience. Our team, which includes a former Virginia Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Resources who oversaw Virginia’s Medicaid program, routinely helps clients seek reimbursement for their Medicaid-eligible services.

    We provide counsel on relationships with managed care companies, which are increasingly becoming responsible for Medicaid payments in Virginia, and we represent post-acute and long term care interests in complex bundled payment arrangements.

    Several of our lawyers serve on the Virginia Health Care Association’s (VHCA’s) Regulatory, Payment for Services, Health Planning, Education and Virginia Center for Assisted Living (VCAL) Committees, and regularly speak at the Association’s events and write for its publications. Their involvement in the VHCA enables them to maintain industry relationships and enhances their awareness of emerging trends.

  • Attorneys in our Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Practice call upon decades of combined experience to negotiate and draft provider and vendor agreements that expand your business. We have become so efficient and cost-effective in this area that we are called upon to handle significant contract overflow situations.

  • Members of our Senior Housing Transactions Team develop transactional structures that reduce risk, improve profitability and facilitate the availability of institutional capital. Our attorneys are particularly skilled in the sale of portfolio companies and have a well-established track record in developing Opco/Propco structures that help clients to realize maximum value in a capital markets exit strategy. Regardless of the location of the assets in your transaction, we can assist you. Our experience is national in scope.
