Are you looking for the top health care law firms in northern Louisiana? With the ever-changing healthcare industry, it is essential to have a team of experienced and knowledgeable lawyers to help you understand the complexities of the law. At Baker Donelson, we have one of the leading health care offices in the United States, with more than 200 attorneys in 11 states and the District of Columbia. Our team of regulatory and transactional lawyers are devoted to helping clients reach their business objectives while facing changes in the healthcare industry. Our policy advisors don't just monitor legislative and regulatory developments; like health policy leaders who have worked in Congress, the White House, and the U.
S. Department of Health and Human Services, now they are also assisting to shape the future of our nation's health policies. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a revolutionary event for the healthcare industry, as important policy decisions are being made in the form of ACA regulations. At Baker Donelson, our lawyers take responsibility for immersing themselves in the industry in which they work.
We don't just investigate cases and manage transactions; we attend business sessions, visit healthcare facilities, and participate in important strategic planning meetings. The doctor-patient relationship is at the heart of the healthcare ecosystem and has a special place in the law and in American life. We strive to earn that same long-term trust and are honored that major healthcare companies have chosen us as their legal and strategic advisors for more than 40 years. We have been consistently ranked as one of the ten best health law firms by the American Healthcare Law Association and named one of the largest health law firms by Modern Healthcare every year. Our team has successfully resolved an employee classification audit with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that could have resulted in a million-dollar assessment.
We have also implemented corporate compliance and ethics plans and HIPAA compliance plans for several nursing home chains. At Baker Donelson, we understand that the best way to care for patients is to have reliable, long-term doctors who manage well-being and chronic diseases, and who are prepared to react quickly to acute problems with the latest knowledge and intuitive care. We assist our clients in managing and liquidating audits for a nominal amount. We also represent publicly traded health care companies, mental health centers, independent community hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, e-commerce companies, hospitals, ambulance companies, and Fortune 500 companies. Our goal is to become your trusted advisor and valuable partner, an expert in regulatory issues and aware of the critical health policy that is being developed. With a large and agile health law team, we are uniquely prepared to take on today's healthcare environment challenges.
