Health Law Committee
The Beverly Hills Bar Association Health Law Committee is composed primarily of attorneys who specialize in representing health care clients and attorneys who represent clients in fields that intersect with the healthcare industry. In addition, membership is open to law students who are interested in or practicing in the health care field and to other professionals who provide services to health industry clients.
Healthcare law is a growing and highly regulated area of law. Attorneys who represent healthcare clients face unique litigation, transactional and regulatory issues that require specialized knowledge. Recent changes in the law, such as updates to HIPAA and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), affect both traditional “healthcare attorneys” and attorneys who practice in all areas of law.
The Committee offers a forum for exchanging ideas at meetings, seminars and educational events, provides state of the art educational programs to improve education and awareness of the challenges and opportunities for health care expertise, and provides enhanced networking opportunities for BHBA members.
