Gibbs Giden’s healthcare practice group provides sophisticated legal guidance to healthcare industry participants throughout California and Nevada. Our attorneys represent hospitals, health systems, providers, and others in the healthcare sector regarding challenging transactional, litigation, and regulatory issues.
Being an experienced business or transactional lawyer is simply not enough when it comes to protecting the interests of healthcare facilities, owners, and practitioners.
