Lisa Katz uses her passion in law to bring a unique hybrid skill set in both the health care transactional and regulatory compliance space, as well as the financial services industry. On behalf of Lisa's healthcare provider clients, she interprets a broad range of regulatory and corporate compliance issues. These include:
  • Privacy and security of health information
  • Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement
  • Licensing and fraud
  • Corporate and contract arrangements involving hospitals, clinics, surgery centers, physician groups and assisted living facilities
  • Clinical integration and alignment between hospitals, health systems and physician groups

Lisa diligently reviews and negotiates contract arrangements between hospitals and physician groups and other third party vendors to interpret both corporate and regulatory issues, negotiates clinical trial agreements and generally advises on other compliance matters for large physician and hospital providers, as well as skilled nursing and other rehabilitation facilities. 

Additionally, Lisa documents, negotiates and closes numerous loan transactions on behalf of her regional lender clients, with specific experience relative to credit facilities within the healthcare industry. She has extensive experience representing lenders in financing transactions for long-term care and senior housing providers, among others, across the country, including revolving lines of credit and term loans (both unsecured and those secured by real estate and/or business assets, including Medicare and Medicaid receivables), bridge-to-HUD loans, and HUD-intercreditor arrangements. Lisa’s multi-disciplinary approach to health care finance transactions benefits her clients as a result of her previous work on both sides of these matters, as she understands not only the legal, but also the business, operational, regulatory and finance issues involved for all parties.

She also provides a large amount of pro bono legal services to organizations such as the National Health Law Program, the oldest non-profit of its kind that protects and advances the health rights of low income and underserved individuals by advocating, educating and litigating at the federal and state level. Lisa understands that health care impacts everyone in some way, shape, or form and that drives her to combine her substantive legal knowledge with her empathy and concern for others in a way that is unmatched.
