Rath Young Pignatelli P.C.

Rath, Young and Pignatelli merges traditional legal practice areas with legislative and public policy expertise. We have earned a reputation for achieving client success through skillful and creative advocacy in private party negotiations, before courts, regulatory agencies and legislatures.

Many of our attorneys have experience in the public and private health care sectors, as members of Boards of health care non-profits and as commentators and participants on important health care policy issues. This practical experience in combination with our technical expertise enables us to understand and anticipate the impact of economic and legal changes in the industry and to help clients cost-effectively manage these issues.

We provide corporate, litigation and regulatory compliance support for our clients on a daily basis, develop and negotiate collaborative relationships and business ventures, provide transactional, tax and employment advice, assist clients with government relations strategies and help clients meet the challenging demands of this highly regulated and competitive industry.

The health care industry is subject to continuing and profound change as a result of persistent economic pressures. Due to dramatically higher health care and liability costs, market participants are constantly exploring many different ways of doing business. Novel business transactions, provider affiliations and attempts to transfer risk between participants in the system are ever-increasing.

At the same time, we appreciate that many of the legal and regulatory responses aimed at reforming the health care system have further increased the complexity of an already complicated set of rules and regulations, without necessarily providing relief from the underlying economic pressures. We understand the impact these changes have on our clients. Our goal is to provide practical and forward-thinking guidance to help our clients successfully navigate through this shifting landscape.

Our health care team provides specialized services to a wide-range of health care clients. In addition, our health care group is supported by our litigation, corporate, insurance, employment and tax group attorneys in order to ensure that the many needs of our clients are recognized and met.
