  • Employment Agreements for Clinicians
  • Informed Consent
  • Insurance Practices and Third-Party Reimbursement

We advise on healthcare regulatory issues, such as:

One of our clients was a licensed psychologist who included energy psychology among her therapeutic modalities. Unfortunately, one of her patients with borderline personality disorder began alternating between idealizing and demonizing the psychologist, ultimately writing a detailed complaint to the Board. We provided expert legal counsel to help defuse the Board’s concerns, and ultimately get the investigation dismissed.
