Dmitry believes the foundation of each client relationship is to act as an advisor instead of simply a courtroom mouthpiece, considering all aspects of your business and what actions best suit your objectives. With 20 years of experience, he is well-versed in risk management and strategy development, not only in litigation but also in pre-dispute exposure analysis and resolution. If a dispute cannot be worked out, Dmitry has extensive experience mediating, arbitrating, and litigating. His experience covers all aspects of litigation, including handling dispositive hearings, pursuing and defending requests for injunctive relief, and trial work before state and federal courtrooms across the entire U.S. as well as multidistrict (MDL) panels. For the most difficult matters to resolve, Dmitry has pursued and defended clients’ positions in state and federal appellate courts and administrative panels.
Dmitry focuses his practice on counseling clients in the health care industry. He addresses in-network and out-of-network reimbursement disputes and managed care contracting issues for hospitals, clinics, labs, medical practices, and physicians on the opposite side of disputes with commercial and government payors. Dmitry understands the difficult and evolving health care environment, which allows him to provide in-depth advice to resolve clients’ complicated reimbursement and contracting issues including underpayments, medical necessity denials, recoupments and offsets, policy changes, patient actions, contract discrimination and retaliation, ERISA preemption, prompt pay, and any willing provider laws.
Dmitry also has vast experience outside of the reimbursement space. He regularly advises clients in medical practice break-ups, commercial contracting disputes with vendors of all stripes, defends clients sued under the false claims and anti-kickback statutes, defends privacy-related class actions arising out of the onerous Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), and has litigated product liability and tort claims in the pharmaceutical, automotive, and aviation industries.
