Practice Area Details



The Theodora Oringher Healthcare Practice Group provides complete transactional and litigation services to our healthcare industry clients. With decades of experience in the healthcare industry, Theodora Oringher has one of the most comprehensive healthcare practices of any law firm in California with more than two dozen attorneys with extensive knowledge in the full breadth of healthcare matters: regulatory, business transactions and litigation.

Theodora Oringher healthcare litigators are well known for their successes and trial victories in all types of healthcare disputes. We regularly handle complex matters involving: clinical issues; staff discipline; billing and payor disputes; general commercial/contract disputes; government/regulatory disputes; shareholder/ owner disputes; intellectual property disputes; employment disputes; and class actions.

We serve as outside general counsel providing a full range of healthcare law services to many managed care plans, hospitals, physician groups, management companies, and integrated delivery systems, some of whom may have either a small in-house legal staff or none at all. We also regularly serve as special counsel on individual issues or transactions, and work with a client's existing in-house or outside legal counsel.

Our experience, diversity and comprehensive understanding of the healthcare delivery system make us unique in our ability to effectively service clients in this complex industry and successfully meet the challenges posed by a constantly changing regulatory landscape.

  • Business strategy
