General business law and legal advice for the holistic client

The new law offices home page reflects an expansion from the CAM-focused mission toward broader delivery of legal services for general business advice.

The home page now reads:

We provide general business legal advice, litigation consults, and health care law expertise, consistent with our core values which focus on holism, healing, compassion, and integrity through clear advice.

Let us help you grow from start-up venture to the full-fledged, profitable business you've always dreamed of creating. Whether your idea involves a health care enterprise (such as, for example, a team of physicians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, psychologists, and healers, working together to help patients), medical or eco-tourism, an environmental project, a research institute, yoga studio, medical spa or wellness center, dietary supplement, other holistic healthcare product, educational center, socially-conscious business, or any other venture, we work efficiently and cost-effectively to identify and meet your goals.

Let our legal experience guide and support you as you refine your business plan; assess incorporation options; line up investors and attract the necessary capital; understand your insurance needs and develop methods to manage liability risks; address licensure, scope of practice, and credentialing issues affecting your facility and/or practitioners; develop institutional and operational policies, and employee or independent contractor agreements; protect your intellectual property (i.e., through patent, trademark, or copyright); meet federal or state regulatory requirements, whether imposed by the FDA, the FTC, or other agencies; and evaluate and address other legal, regulatory, and institutional or business needs.

We can serve as general counsel for your start-up, as your personal attorney if you are an individual, or in a consulting capacity if you already have a general business attorney but seek special expertise in law pertaining to complementary and alternative medical (CAM) therapies such as herbal medicine.

If you are considering or engaged in litigation, we will work with your existing attorney and furnish advice, expert opinions, or reports for litigation. We will also help you review options such as negotiation and mediation to help resolve disputes. If you are a clinician, we can represent you in responding to disciplinary investigations by your regulatory board (including medical and psychology boards). Or, if you are just looking for an attorney who is guided by wisdom yet grounded in the nitty-gritty, we can assist you with general business law concerns. We have years of unique experience that informs our legal and business judgment. Our clients include many kinds of professionals and ventures, as well as practitioners such as physicians, nurses, psychologists, and chiropractors, and facilities from clinics and wellness centers to medical spas and supplement manufacturers.

We commit to helping your business prosper, while serving the clinically responsible, ethically appropriate, and legally defensible integration of a full spectrum of therapies into health and human healing. Our attorneys are licensed in California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Washington, D.C., and the United Kingdom, although we have experience working with clients in many states, from Vermont across to Oregon, and with international projects such as Dubai Health Care City or the sale of police evidence vehicles destined for Beijing.

This reflects the more updated firm focus for its further expansion.
