Fredrikson & Byron Law Health Law Group

Deep expertise. Creative approach. Critical thinking. Practical advice.

For over 60 years, Fredrikson and Byron’s Health Law team has advised health care organizations and navigated regulatory issues in the health care industry. We have witnessed the evolution of “health law,” and we will be here to anticipate its future. From professional practices to multi-state health systems, our clients turn to us to interpret the law—beyond the conventional wisdom—explain the risk and recommend a unique approach. Our clients describe us as their “gut check” and “backstop” as they navigate the regulatory landscape and grow their businesses. Because of this approach, we have gained the trust of some of the top hospitals and life science companies in the world.

We are supporting our clients through the COVID-19 pandemic. Since February 2020, we have been working with our clients on issues of telehealth, professional licensing, disaster credentialing, CMS waivers, surge staffing, the Payment Protection Program, HHS provider relief funds, employee and visitor safety, and unique liability matters.

Our lawyers regularly speak at national conferences, such as the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA), Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), American Academy of Orthopedic Executives (AAOE), Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), as well as many state medical group and hospital associations. We are frequent contributors to industry and trade group publications and broadcasts such as RAC Monitor’s Monitor Monday, Medicare Compliance Report, and Orthopedics Today.

2020 marks the 15th year of Fredrikson & Byron’s free monthly health law webinar series. We reach hundreds of health lawyers and compliance and operations executives each month from all 50 states.
