Physicians Antitrust Lawyers Serving Florida
Florida has a booming healthcare industry, with more and more providers opening up in an already saturated market. Healthcare competition is at the forefront of many providers’ minds, as they try to get new patients and provide the highest quality of care. Staying on top of advancing technology, construction of new facilities, and increased competition can be a challenge.
While you focus on your patients and providing treatment, keep in mind that legal issues involving antitrust laws commonly arise in this industry. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) devotes much of its efforts to antitrust concerns within the healthcare field since the industry involves such high consumer spending.
If you are facing antitrust allegations or need to bring a lawsuit, seek help from physician antitrust lawyers serving Florida as soon as possible.
Insurance companies regularly present challenges when it comes to providing the healthcare services that are best for your patients. This leads many physicians to join together and form networks to have greater leverage with insurers. However, the larger a practice becomes, the greater chance there is of facing antitrust allegations from other providers in your market. If you are facing an FTC investigation or a lawsuit, you need experienced legal representation right away.
On the other hand, your practice might be the victim of unfair competition by a large hospital or medical center. These businesses have many resources, and they maintain their position in the market by luring patients from smaller providers. Sometimes, they might use unlawful tactics to do so and engage in unfair competition. You have the right to stand up to unfair competitors by filing an antitrust lawsuit in federal court.

You might need assistance if:
- You are facing an antitrust lawsuit from a competitor
- You are under investigation by the FTC
- You need to stand up to unfair competitors in your market
Keep in mind that hospitals have legal teams in place, ready to defend against antitrust lawsuits whenever necessary.
