Health Care Law
From its inception, Gwin, Steinmetz & Baird attorneys have partnered with the health care industry.
We are advocates for the health care industry both inside and outside the courtroom. We represent health care industry groups and coalitions in the identification, drafting and promotion through the legislative process of statutes and regulations intended to reduce the cost and burden of litigation on the industry while at the same time promoting the efficient and fair resolution of claims. Our attorneys have appeared and testified before legislative committees, and appeared on television programs in support of legislation to aid health care providers.
We represent health care providers including physicians, hospitals, insurers and long term care providers not only in medical negligence matters but also in business litigation relating to many aspects of health care and the relationships between and among health care providers.
We believe that it is important to maximize the opportunity for our health care clients to focus resources on providing high quality health care services by removing as much of the cost and lost time associated with litigation and regulatory compliance as possible. Our years representing the health care industry allow us to be efficient in assessing and addressing issues that distract health care providers from the more important work of patient care. Assessing exposure, identifying client goals, and implementing strategies to achieve those goals – including, where appropriate, the effective defense of claims in court or the resolution of claims through mediation and arbitration -is central to our approach.
