Lathrop Gage represents clients’ interests in healthcare-related business litigation disputes at the local, state and federal levels.
Our clients trust our experience with highly regulated organizations. We understand the pressures on officers and directors working in an environment of increasingly frequent criminal charges brought by federal prosecutors and state attorneys general. We address medical staff issues including fair hearing plans and process, physician contract litigation, investigations and hearings. And, we evaluate and defend medical staff hearing decisions in cases of antitrust, breach of contract and civil rights violations, medical negligence suits, and medical malpractice. We also defend fraud and abuse concerns regarding government program reimbursement, including The False Claims Act (Qui tam).
Our litigation team can assist with healthcare client issues including:
- Breach of Contract
- Fraud and Abuse Claims
- False Claims (Qui Tam)

With a wealth of experience in business litigation, our team includes former state attorneys general, current and former elected officials and leaders within key regulatory bodies. Several of our attorneys have been inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers.
