Protecting Physicians’ Rights to Practice Medicine
The Law Offices of George M. Sanders, P.C. provides antitrust legal services for individual physicians, physician owned facilities such as surgery centers and imaging centers, physician practice groups, and physician joint ventures such as independent practice associations. This area of practice includes: advising physicians about the possible antitrust and price fixing issues that are sometimes raised when physicians enter into a merger or joint venture with other physicians, create or join an independent practice association or physician hospital association, or undertake some other form of collaborative conduct with competing physicians; antitrust litigation; defending physicians subject to a government investigation; and defending physicians subject to a peer-review proceeding.
The Need for Balance in the Medical System
While many physicians view the antitrust laws as putting them at a competitive disadvantage vis-à-vis health insurers, the truth is that the antitrust laws have much more flexibility than is oftentimes realized. The antitrust laws do not flatly prohibit collaborative efforts by physicians that improve care, even if those efforts give physicians the ability to jointly negotiate better fee arrangements with health insures.

Attorney Sanders Focuses on the Unique Aspects of Health Care Antitrust Law as Applied to Physicians
Health care antitrust law is unique – as your lawyer, I listen to your specific situation and use the depth of my experience representing physicians to ensure that you receive the best possible legal representation and advice. Health care antitrust law and the complex issues that fall under that heading raise unique challenges for an attorney experienced in antitrust law. There is definitely a learning curve. I have worked with physicians for years on health care antitrust issues. I have followed for years the efforts of physicians to cope with the changing health care landscape and the evolution of the antitrust laws.
You Are Not Handed Off to Anyone
For most of my career, I practiced at large and mid-sized firms (please see my Attorney Profile for more information). I bring to all of my clients the experience I gained at these firms without the big firm fees. More importantly, my clients get the full benefit of my experience. Cases are not passed on to less experienced associates. As a solo practitioner, I focus on your case, I handle your case and I answer your questions personally.
My goal as your attorney is to provide practical legal solutions that let you do what you were trained to do and what you do best – treat patients. You may contact me at: Law Offices of George M. Sanders, P.C. 312-624-7646 | E-Mail.
