Healthcare Law

Assisting Healthcare Clients in Maryland, Delaware and Throughout the Eastern Shore.

The lawyers at McAllister, DeTar, Showalter & Walker (MDSW) know the regulatory, business, and competitive challenges facing healthcare-industry clients. We understand that nothing is simple in healthcare, whether you are a physician or other professional facing the increasingly-complex demands of practice, a business serving healthcare clients in an unfamiliar regulatory environment, or an entrepreneur focused on bringing the next cutting-edge innovation to market.

At MDSW, our healthcare lawyers partner with our clients to provide the knowledge, insights, and direction to help them thrive in the complex modern healthcare environment. We explore options, consider potential risks and craft personally tailored guidance and strategies focused squarely on helping our clients avoid pitfalls and achieve their objectives.

Comprehensive, Sophisticated Representation for Healthcare Businesses

MDSW lawyers can provide comprehensive counsel for professionals and healthcare businesses of all sizes, as well as businesses serving healthcare clients, on a wide range of matters, including:

  • Medical Practice Representation.  Our experienced business and corporate attorneys help healthcare professionals manage the business side of practice so they can focus on their patients. At all career stages—from just starting out with a new partner, to hiring a first employee, to the sale of interests in an established group—MDSW can help. We provide thorough and meticulously drafted documentation and conduct complete due diligence for business transactions, reorganizations, spin-offs, mergers and acquisitions, purchase and sale agreements as well as contracts with business partners, employees, suppliers, vendors and customers. At MDSW, we work closely with you to understand your needs and goals and then provide the guidance you need to protect your interests and fuel your practice’s success.
  • Regulatory Compliance. Healthcare professionals and businesses operate in a complex regulatory environment. The lawyers at MDSW strive to help healthcare-industry clients meet their business goals while navigating the complex interplay of federal and state healthcare regulation. Even non-healthcare businesses working with healthcare clients find they need experienced counsel regarding applicable healthcare laws, including HIPAA, the Stark Law, the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, the False Claims Act, and their state equivalents. The lawyers at MDSW can help you navigate this environment so you can proceed with confidence.
  • Physician Employment Contracts.  The details of a physician employment contract are very important, especially when hiring someone with partnership potential. Our attorneys have experience drafting and carefully negotiating these complex agreements, including restrictive covenants (such as non-compete and non-solicitation clauses), insurance, coverage and call, and compensation provisions that are essential to planning for a productive and successful relationship.
  • General Outside Counsel.  We strive to provide effective outside general counsel to a variety of healthcare clients of all sizes. From business litigation to regulatory compliance and land use to corporate transactions, the lawyers of MDSW have diverse skill sets and years of experience to support healthcare clients of all size with their outside counsel needs.
