Corporate Governance

Our health care attorneys have extensive experience in counseling corporate management and boards relative to federal and state laws pertaining to fiduciary duties and organizational requirements. We regularly advise clients relative to the development of governance-related policies and procedures. These issues are of particular import for health care providers, many of which are operated as tax-exempt, nonprofit entities. Nonprofit corporations that fail to meet governance standards and requirements risk losing their tax-exempt status, state licensing, and accreditation status.

Our attorneys advise corporate clients with respect to governance standards promulgated by numerous sources including the Internal Revenue Service, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services and related state agencies. We play an active role in counseling corporations and other business entities with respect to best practices pertaining to conflicts of interest, disclosure requirements, fiduciary duties, and strategic planning.
