Overview

Foulston Siefkin provides legal services to clients in the continuum of long-term care. Our attorneys represent organizations providing services in the long-term care space, including developers and operators of independent and assisted living communities, Alzheimer’s and memory care facilities, nursing homes (including skilled nursing facilities), continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), and home care providers. We counsel our clients in all aspects of their business, construction and real estate, employment, financing, litigation, privacy, risk management, regulatory compliance, reimbursement, tax, transactions, and other legal affairs. We assist diverse types of long-term care facilities with issues involving federal and state regulators and taxing authorities, insurance reimbursement, professional liability, licensing, and quality assurance. We assist our clients with issues involving residents, guardians, providers and vendors, employees, and government regulators.

Our attorneys maintain a high level of expertise regarding federal and state regulations affecting the long-term care industry. At the same time, the relationship of our long-term care practice group with Foulston Siefkin’s other practice groups, including the healthcare, business, taxation, labor and employment, employee benefits, construction, real estate, and litigation groups, enhances our ability to consider the legal ramifications of our clients' situations.
