Morrison Cohen represents numerous physicians and physician groups in federal and state trial and appellate cases, arbitrations, mediations and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings in various forums, and administrative agency and internal hospital proceedings. We also routinely provide advice in advance of potential litigation and craft strategies that enable our physician and physician group clients to avoid costly litigation.
We have a deep understanding of the special business, professional and legal needs of healthcare professionals. Where the need arises, and in the best interests of our clients, we also utilize lawyers in our other practice groups, such as Corporate, Tax, Bankruptcy & Reorganization, and Employment, to formulate an integrated and cohesive strategic approach to a litigation or pre-litigation dispute.
Our matters cover a broad range of commercial disputes, including the following representative areas of dispute: restrictive covenant and termination issues vs. group/employer or a hospital; internal partnership or practice disputes; disciplinary matters before a hospital, the Office of Professional Medical Misconduct, the Department of Education or other administrative agencies; medical staff privilege disputes; breakup and dissolution of partnerships and practice groups and the ancillary issues relating to practice and compensation; contract negotiations and disputes with hospitals and practice groups; and exclusive contract disputes.
