The American healthcare system faces enormous challenges.  Fierce competition, complex regulations, intense government scrutiny, technological advances and financial and political uncertainty create unrelenting pressure to improve quality and lower costs. Standards, whether demanded by the public, the government or self-imposed, are extremely high. Failure to achieve them can be disastrous.


Taylor Porter understands these challenges and is focused on helping our clients find efficient, cost-effective solutions. Our Health Care Practice Group is an integrated, multi-disciplinary team with extensive experience in virtually every aspect of healthcare delivery and financing. That experience includes areas with special application in healthcare, including tax, antitrust, labor and employment, environmental, governmental relations and all forms of litigation, administrative proceedings and alternative dispute resolution.

Dynamic. Complex. Competitive. Uncertain. All describe our healthcare system. And providing the full range of legal services necessary for our clients to succeed within that system is what the Taylor Porter Health Care Practice Group does every day.
