Overview

When hospital and academic medical systems, provider practices, durable medical equipment suppliers, and telehealth providers need a responsive and conscientious health regulatory lawyer to handle their compliance, defense, and transactional matters, they turn to attorney Amy Lerman.

Amy works with clients on matters involving government investigations, audits, and related claims of fraud, false claims, and other noncompliant behaviors. She addresses a diverse scope of regulatory questions, advising on compliance-related questions and the development of corporate compliance program infrastructures. Clients also seek Amy’s advice on legal, regulatory, and reimbursement matters arising under the Medicare, Medicaid, and other third-party reimbursement programs. In addition, Amy keeps health-related companies and investors up to date on industry trends and policy developments.

Amy supports each of her clients through their “life cycle” of legal needs and works with many of her clients throughout their phases of growth and evolution. This approach has provided clients with an advantage as they transition into virtual methods of health care delivery and has made Amy a go-to lawyer in telehealth. She helps telehealth clients develop and execute strategies for company structure, development, and growth. Amy also advises telehealth clients on trends and the development of regulatory strategies for growing and expanding telehealth businesses to achieve nationwide footprints.
