Over the last handful of years, as addiction treatment providers have expanded their services into traditionally medical services (e.g. clinical lab and physician services) the need for specialized lawyers with knowledge and longstanding experience in healthcare law has become increasingly crucial.

In response, the Florida Healthcare Law Firm shaped a three-pronged approach to helping the industry—corporate/regulatory counsel; operational compliance counsel; and payer preparedness. Jeff heads the corporate/regulatory services of the Firm. Attorney Jackie Bain heads the operational compliance division. And Attorney Karina Gonzalez heads up all payer related issues for the industry (e.g. insurer payment and recoupment). Additionally, in early 2017 the Firm launched a new comprehensive compliance process, Risk Shield Tools, to provide a simple and integrated compliance solution for the industry.

Named “Best Health Care Attorney” at the 1995 Medical Business Health Care Awards, Mr. Cohen was selected by his peers as a “Leading American Attorney.” He was selected by his peers as one of the Florida Legal Elite for 2008 and again in 2013 and was recognized in Florida Trend‘s 2008 & 2013 print issues. He was also honored as a Key Partner for 2011 by the South Florida Business Journal and he and the Florida firm have been listed in each of the annual editions of Best Lawyers in America, Best Law Firms in America and Super Lawyers since 2011. He was featured as an expert panelist in the 2014 and 2015 Healthcare Transaction Advisors Mergers & Acquisitions Performance Study.
