We represent public and private entities, nonprofit and for-profit corporations, who become involved in myriad business activities. Commercial litigation includes cases involving contract disputes, payment issues and issues involving real and personal property, among other matters. Our clients include health care institutions, assisted living facilities, long-term health care organizations. Our representation also involves a wide array of affirmative claims seeking to enforce the rights of our clients.
Payment Dispute Litigation
The field of health care services, in particular, is heavily regulated and complex. With regard to health care clients, counseling includes advice and preparation of forms such as admission agreements, private pay agreements and net available monthly income (NAMI) or surplus agreements with regard to long-term care providers. We will pursue all available avenues to assist our clients in this area, including guardianships, claims under the Fraudulent Conveyance Act and prosecuting health benefit appeals or TPL recoveries.
Guardianship and Estate Matters
Guardianship proceedings are often required where an individual has not designated a health care proxy or provided for a power of attorney. We have developed extensive experience in representing institutional and non-institutional clients in petitioning for guardianship in cases involving a lack of responsible representatives. We also represent clients in estate matters where claims must be filed for recovery of amounts owed by deceased individuals or where health care providers are designated as beneficiaries under a will or trust.
