This one-day program is designed to address the unique issues faced by in-house counsel. Sessions are focused on practical, hands-on ways to function in these challenging day-to-day work roles and responsibilities of in-house counsel lawyers. The U.S. health care landscape is undergoing a major evolution due to changing demographics, consumer demand, payer priorities, diminishing geographic boundaries and the convergence of technological and medical innovations.

He also will provide in-house counsel with a view as to their important role in guiding their clients through the changing environment. His presentation will offer attendees a thought-provoking vision of healthcare in 2025 to enable you to have a rich dialogue with your clients about future scenarios and how best to respond.

The rest of the day will include in-depth, practical breakout sessions. Some of the breakout sessions topics include:

  • Point/Counterpoint: Negotiating a Hospital’s Acquisition of a Physician Practice
