Our experienced team frequently represents providers in obtaining licensure
and in defending against allegations of professional misconduct before
the New Hampshire Boards of Medicine, Dentistry, Mental Health and others.
We seek to resolve these matters in a manner that protects our client's
ability to practice while minimizing public scrutiny. Generally, we take
a creative and proactive approach, intervening early and actively managing
the case throughout. We are fully aware of the impact an allegation of
professional misconduct can have on a provider and seek to minimize any
negative impact. Having an attorney who knows the process and is experienced
in handling these matters, including the management of potential collateral
consequences is essential.
We have had a number of cases where disciplinary action by the Board could
have resulted in exclusion from participation in federal health care programs.
We have worked with providers throughout the process to avoid this devastating
outcome with great success.
We routinely assist providers in meeting licensure requirements, addressing
certificate of need requirements, obtaining licensure and responding to
governmental inquiries. This is an area with many pitfalls for the inexperienced
provider. Given our experience, we are able to anticipate the licensure
issues that arise during
business transactions including changes of ownership, avert unnecessary delay and avoid traps
for the unwary.
