The Bowles Rice Health Care Group emphasizes quality advice based on a thorough understanding of the law and the client's mission, goals and objectives. Our approach is to solve problems for the client by offering alternatives and solutions which meet those goals and objectives. Our ability to solve client problems requires not only the skill to guide the client through a highly complex maze of laws and regulations, but also an understanding of the political, social and economic factors which often underlie health care policy. The members of our Health Care Group are uniquely qualified to provide these insights to our health care clients. Bowles Rice has a special commitment to assisting health care providers, representing hospitals, physicians and physician groups, behavioral health providers, long term care facilities and child welfare agencies. Our clients also include health maintenance organizations, other managed care organizations and third party administrators.
In addition to the services of our Health Care Group, health care clients have direct access to all of the legal resources and services of our firm including litigation, labor, employee benefits, workers' compensation, real estate, bankruptcy, tax, public finance, environmental law, and government relations to meet the client's legal needs.
We are committed to staying abreast of breaking developments in the rapidly changing health care industry. We belong to the American Health Lawyers Association and the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association and regularly participate in and attend health law seminars and conferences. We also subscribe to the leading publications devoted to developing issues in the health care arena and have immediate access to up-to-the-minute information through the Internet via desktop computers on every lawyer's desk.
