Chambliss attorneys remove the legal obstacles for local, regional, and national health care clients so they can focus on what they do best – providing the highest levels of care and service. Our litigation and health care teams understand disputes and lawsuits can be costly distractions, and we do everything we can to eliminate these distractions quickly and cost-effectively. Some of our clients include physicians and nurses, billing and practice management companies, provider groups, and mental health facilities. In addition, we advise home and community-based health care organizations, including acute care hospitals, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, and hospices.
We represent our health care clients in a variety of litigation. Some of our most recent cases cover licensing and credentialing, state and federal compliance, fraud and abuse investigations, Medicare and private insurance reimbursements, involuntary commitment hearings and conservatorships, shareholder disputes, and revenue cycle management issues. Health care litigation frequently challenges the propriety of care rendered over months and years. So, discovery can be complex, time consuming, and expensive. Understanding each client's unique needs allows us to effectively streamline every response to opposing counsel while protecting proprietary and privileged information.
With each case, we work closely to fully understand the client's situation, desired outcomes, and budget. We prepare for trial from day one and have taken extremely sophisticated cases to trial. We also have obtained favorable results for clients through alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It can offer financial security by insulating clients from overly burdensome discovery procedures and unwanted litigation. We have front-line experience defending against challenges to arbitration agreements, and we have advocated for their enforcement before the Tennessee Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal. While we work proactively with clients to mitigate risk and decrease liability, we are well-equipped to represent them should litigation arise. Our team is known as responsive, trusted, and well connected and will do all we can to obtain excellent results.
