McAfee & Taft assists businesses in the healthcare industry in all aspects of their operations and transactions.  Our lawyers have expertise in the industry’s unique regulatory environment as well as the tax, employment, litigation and general business ramifications of our clients’ operations.

We represent hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers in medical staff matters and fair hearings.  We represent clients, including HMOs, nursing homes, hospices and others, in appeals of administrative rulings relating to licensure and certification issues.   We appear before healthcare, labor, environmental, tax and other governmental agencies to represent clients in regulatory compliance matters.

McAfee & Taft attorneys also represent physicians, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living centers, and medical and dental professionals against claims of malpractice and negligence, including those involving standard of care claims, negligence in peer review and negligent credentialing claims, misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose claims, and bad faith issues.

We represent clients in all types of general commercial litigation matters.  Our lawyers handle both simple and complex litigation.  We serve as counsel for healthcare manufacturers involved in mass tort cases, including litigation associated with Phen-Fen.
