Background - Practices (Details)

Health Care Professional and Trade Associations

Trade associations and professional societies face a host of legal issues on which Crowell & Moring has significant experience. Since the firm's founding, we have counseled and litigated for our association clients on the full range of legal issues they confront.

Our clients include professional and trade associations, professional societies, professional education groups, and foundations. Our lawyers serve these clients as outside general counsel, special counsel, and subject matter advisors on specific association issues. In the health care arena, these issues frequently require offering special advice on reimbursement and/or fraud and abuse, challenges to regulations and administrative actions, and other substantive regulatory issues.

Our substantive legal knowledge in the subject matter of our clients' professions or industries, combined with our overall association experience, provides the firm with a deep, comprehensive understanding of the issues that face associations and their members. Our approach is to draw on that experience to craft creative solutions for our clients.
