Medical Malpractice Defense and Healthcare Law
Behr, McCarter & Potter’s medical malpractice defense and healthcare law practice includes both litigation and non-litigation matters. We have built an outstanding reputation representing hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare providers in medical malpractice actions in Missouri and Illinois, and have also developed extensive resources, including expert witness databases, to assist us in the defense of our clients. Steve Potter, Tom Hayek, and Rich Behr each have almost 30 years of experience in representing hospitals, physicians, and other healthcare providers.
We also have extensive experience in non-litigation healthcare law matters. We advise hospitals on day-to-day issues and provide strategies for effective and efficient avoidance of professional liability. We routinely represent hospitals and healthcare professionals in administrative matters and provide consultative services on a wide variety of issues. We regularly represent professionals before various licensing boards. Our practice includes the defense of employment discrimination cases brought by employees of our healthcare clients.
