We represent health care providers in malpractice cases and in a variety of proceedings before governmental licensing and regulatory agencies. We defend individual physicians or other health care professionals, as well as medical groups or facilities, against malpractice claims. In addition, we represent health care professionals before state licensing boards and other regulatory agencies in more cases than any other law firm in the Upper Midwest. We have written articles and lectured on malpractice litigation, licensing board disciplinary investigations, and other regulatory issues affecting health care. For the past several years, we have lectured to University of Minnesota Medical School students. One of our litigators was selected by a joint task force of the Minnesota health licensing boards to serve on a panel to analyze licensing board investigations and to recommend improvement.

We defended a world-renowned health care provider in a medical malpractice suit alleging failure to diagnose an epidural abscess. The quadriplegic plaintiff sought over $8 million in damages. After a three-week trial, the jury returned a defense verdict.
We represented a Minnesota health care provider that was sued in Iowa for medical malpractice that allegedly occurred in Iowa. We moved for dismissal based on lack of jurisdiction. The plaintiff resisted, claiming the clinic's website and other contacts justified jurisdiction in Iowa. The court concluded that no jurisdiction existed in Iowa and dismissed the case.
We defended a health care provider that was sued for negligence in connection with an outpatient MRI. The parties obtained a neutral evaluation of the case by an agreed-upon neutral. The plaintiff later voluntarily dismissed his suit.
We were asked by a medical clinic to evaluate medical malpractice insurance issues in connection with a possible "excess" verdict in an underlying medical malpractice case. We analyzed the issues and advised the clinic regarding insurance issues. Fortunately, the trial produced a defense verdict.
We have represented medical doctors, dentists, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists and other health care professionals in more than 400 cases before state licensing boards. Also, we have successfully represented the same types of clients and health care facilities in numerous peer review proceedings.
