FERRERE has built its experience and reputation in representing health care companies and providers in processes with regulatory agencies over decades. Its attorneys have successfully arranged authorizations, company re-qualifications, proposals for regulatory changes with government authorities, and strategies for making business structures viable. The firm’s attorneys process licenses required for importing equipment and technologies, and participate in negotiations on health treatment rates. The professional team, together with litigation and mediation specialists, also resolves mal praxis cases, and deals with relations between institutions and their members.

In assisting for-profit and non-profit health care companies, FERRERE is involved in legal and business restructurings, in negotiations with strategic suppliers, and in adapting legal structures for compliance with requirements for regulatory and tax incentives.
