Health care organizations often make business decisions that raise antitrust concerns. These decisions can involve medical staff privileges; exclusive contracting; group purchasing; managed care plans and integrated delivery systems; clinical turf battles; pricing decisions; and the structuring of joint ventures, acquisitions, consolidations and mergers.
Our lawyers identify the antitrust issues and advise you of the legal consequences of a particular course of action. Often we can recommend alternative ways to achieve your business objectives without violating the antitrust laws.
If you become involved in antitrust litigation, Garvey Schubert Barer has veteran antitrust lawyers to represent you. Our services include negotiating with the U.S. Department of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general.
