Few industries undergo the type of continual transformation that defines the health care industry in the United States. Whether your company provides health care, develops information technology or researches and develops new medical drugs and devices, you are subject to complex regulatory and business risks at multiple levels. Likewise, if you are a physician and other non-institutional provider, you need timely and practical advice that can help you not only grow your practice but also potentially avoid costly legal pitfalls.
Responding to these issues with experience and personalized service has earned Fox Rothschild its reputation as a leading national health law practice. We work with our clients -- locally, regionally and across the nation -- carefully reviewing each situation to determine options and tailor solutions to fit the circumstances at hand and the individuals involved.
Federal Government Contracts and Procurement
Every aspect of a federal government contractor’s operations – from how they procure business to how they hire and manage a workforce, as well as a myriad of other issues – is influenced by complex rules and regulations. Understanding and navigating the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and the various agency FAR Supplements is essential to surviving, and ultimately thriving, in a hyper-competitive environment.
The core of a federal contractor’s operations is shaped by the statutes and regulatory requirements governing performance and compliance, such as the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA), DCAA’s Contract Audit Manual, the False Claims Act, the Fraud Enforcement Recovery Act (FERA) and the Contract Disputes Act (CDA). Securing equitable treatment and fairness under these regulatory and statutory regimes requires experienced legal counsel. Fox Rothschild is that legal counsel. We know the complex web of rules and regulations and work with our clients to help them avoid risks and perform successfully.
Our attorneys provide strategic counsel in the development and submission of proposals as well as fulfillment of federal contracts and grants. We also litigate performance and payment claims on behalf of our clients, both in the courts and before administrative tribunals. We partner with clients throughout the process – from initial review of procurement documents through to source selection, contract performance and negotiations. One of our strengths is the proactive approach we take by designing and conducting understandable and business-friendly in-house training programs. We regularly assist clients in the development and implementation of their business ethics and compliance programs and help them understand the seemingly ever-changing federal regulations and requirements.
Businesses of every size and in a broad range of industries recognize the need to comply with environmental laws and regulations. Whether clients are facing complex litigation involving issues like toxic torts or air pollution, seeking to go “green” for efficiency, looking for energy and utility advice, or buying or selling a business or property, we can help them navigate increasingly difficult challenges.
Our attorneys know the science, regulations and case law that impact environmental concerns. We know how to work, negotiate and litigate with federal and state environmental agencies. We know your business and are responsive and flexible in meeting your needs.
Our lawyers are also well-versed in developing areas of environmental law and policy, including climate change and greenhouse gases, chemical restriction and registration rules, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and green building.
Fox attorneys are significantly involved in legislative, administrative and regulatory matters in the states in which we have offices and at the local and federal levels. We consider how to best accomplish a client's objectives in all branches of government and then proactively aid clients in seeking successful outcomes.
We assist clients in complying with state ethics and lobbying registration requirements; research and analyze proposed bills, rules and legislative issues; draft legislation, resolutions and amendments; identify funding opportunities within the federal and state budgets; obtain government contracts; and communicate with legislators and executive branch officials.
Our lawyer-advocates are skilled draftspersons who consider constitutional questions and other potential statutory or administrative law conflicts. Our lawyers also have extensive experience with complicated election, ethics, lobbying and contracting law and work with clients and their legislative representatives to create and maintain laws and regulations designed to help their businesses prosper.
