Health Care Law

Kerr Russell’s experience in the field of health care law spans more than 60 years. In that time, and in representing a multitude of health care professionals and providers, our attorneys have developed uncommon insight into the relationships among physicians, insurers, health facilities and patients.

Our attorneys counsel physicians, hospitals and other health care providers, managed care interests, durable medical equipment providers, major groups in organized medicine, and medical staffs. We also counsel assisted living centers, nursing homes and homes for the aged. Our representation of health care clients also includes administrative proceedings, and licensure and litigation services.  Additionally, a particular strength of our practice concerns the formation and representation of alternative risk transfer entities for health care clients, including captive insurance companies, risk retention groups and other alternative insurance structures.
