Forming a new medical practice in San Diego such as a dental or medical group, surgical center, clinic, or laboratory is quite legally complex. The experienced medical and healthcare business attorneys at the Watkins Firm have served the San Diego medical community for decades. We work to ensure that your new business or professional corporation is compliant with a myriad of federal and state business and health care laws. OSHA and HIPPA compliance are central to any successful medical business, and many may require licensing or registration in order to comply with state regulations. The recent Dynamex decision presents legal hurdles when independent contractors are an important component of your business strategy.
Medical business contracts are quite different from the standard business forms and contracts you might find online or at download sites. Ensuring that employment agreements for the physicians and medical professionals protect the integrity of the business are also key ingredients to the formation of a new medical practice. These contracts are governed by separate legal standards and restrictions and it is important to select a law firm with deep experience and expertise in these matters.
Structuring the operating agreement or shareholders agreement to protect owners while taking maximum advantage of retirement and benefit strategies ensures smooth operations, reduction of the potential for business disputes as well as maximum profitability.
