Health Care Law

Health care law is a defin­ing pas­sion at Tiemeier & Stich, and a mul­ti-faceted prac­tice area that ties the major­i­ty of our attor­neys togeth­er. Inside the doctor’s office, we take on med­ical mal­prac­tice cas­es, as well as employ­ment prac­tices, help­ing to draft and advise on con­tract nego­ti­a­tions, non-com­pete agree­ments, employ­ee poli­cies and ter­mi­na­tions. We also sup­port our clients with HIPAA com­pli­ance, Stark com­pli­ance, EMRs and prac­tice dis­so­lu­tions or splits. Out­side the doctor’s office, we also spe­cial­ize in help­ing physi­cians, prac­tice groups, hos­pi­tals, and oth­er health care providers with real estate issues, such as devel­op­ment agree­ments, acqui­si­tions and sales, ground leas­es, restric­tive covenants, physician/practice leas­es, and land-use issues for the devel­op­ment of med­ical office build­ings and hos­pi­tals. In addi­tion, our attor­neys reg­u­lar­ly rep­re­sent physi­cians and prac­tice groups when it comes to cor­po­rate gov­er­nance and cer­tain aspects of prac­tice man­age­ment, such as bylaws, oper­at­ing agree­ments and share­hold­er agree­ments, buy sell agree­ments, and own­er­ship inter­ests.
