Our experienced team frequently represents providers in obtaining licensure
and in defending against allegations of professional misconduct before
the New Hampshire professional licensing boards, including the Boards
of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Mental Health, and others. We prefer
a proactive approach, intervening early and actively managing the case
throughout. We routinely assist clients in responding to subpoenas and
investigations and, when necessary, at hearings before the Board.
Beyond the Board proceedings, we are aware of the many collateral consequences
which may arise as a result of a Board investigation or disciplinary action
and assist clients in anticipating, limiting, and managing such consequences
as appropriate. These include, but are not limited to, criminal, civil
and administrative actions which may be related to the Board matter, credentialing
issues, required disclosures to third-party payers and others, minimizing
the negative business implications, and responding to media inquiries.
We routinely assist providers in obtaining health care facility licensure,
in maintaining compliance with licensure standards, and in responding
to governmental inquiries or investigations related to licensure. Our
experienced professionals are familiar with the requirements of governmental
third-party payers as they relate to licensure and assist providers in
navigating this complex regulatory scheme.
