Virginia’s licensed professionals – doctors, dentists, architects, engineers, and the like – require a distinct set of legal needs, unique to their profession’s many regulations and requirements. Our attorneys understand “the lay of the land” for all forms of professional-services firms, and we can help these clients properly establish their business, ensure regulatory compliance, and advise on insurance and employment rules and tax structures. We guide clients through the patchwork of necessary processes and paperwork required to transact business as a professional services entity.
We also assist professional-services entities when it comes time for an “event” – such as an owner’s exit, a merger with another firm, or an acquisition. We work with all parties to sort out licensing issues, medical record and HIPAA confidentiality, and other nuances that are particular to the licensed business.
