Areas of Practice


Healthcare is big business in Houston, where both SKV and the Texas Medical Center are located. Since its inception, SKV has represented large and small institutions throughout the region. SKV has come to the aid of the healthcare industry in both civil and white-collar matters. On the civil front, SKV has obtained landmark rulings for healthcare clients, including a Fifth Circuit opinion limiting the scope of claims that can be brought against healthcare providers under the federal EMTALA act. On behalf of Texas Medical Center institutions, SKV has pursued and recovered tens of millions of dollars in third-party contract reimbursement disputes. But our civil healthcare clients aren’t just the big guys we also represent physicians, physician practice groups, and clinics in business disputes. Our white-collar attorneys have successfully represented doctors, nurses, and healthcare institutions in a host of federal and state investigations. Our decades of experience representing healthcare clients in matters running the gamut from criminal investigations to professional negligence and administrative proceedings means we know healthcare and what it takes to obtain a “win” for our healthcare clients.
