Medical Staff Litigation
We represent hospitals, medical staffs and peer review physicians in the defense of medical staff privileges litigation. We specialize in serving as outside litigation counsel in cases where disciplined physicians sue in civil court seeking money damages. We represent hospitals, public and private, throughout California in such litigation.
In 2006, our firm had one case proceed to the California Supreme Court. The Court unanimously ruled in our hospital client’s favor to, for the first time, apply California’s Anti-SLAPP Statute to provide additional protections to doctors sitting on hospital peer review committees.
