Experienced healthcare regulatory and transactional lawyer

Colin Luke has extensive experience in healthcare transactions and regulatory issues involving a wide range of providers in the academic, governmental, non-profit and for-profit sectors.  He is routinely involved in Certificate of Need matters, joint ventures between physician and other types of providers and sales or mergers of healthcare providers.

Hospitals, health systems, physicians and outpatient services providers depend on Colin for assistance with regulatory compliance matters involving the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark law, HIPAA and patient privacy, state healthcare regulations and the development of effective corporate compliance programs.

Healthcare clients also rely on Colin for assistance with operations issues such as provider and payor certifications, facility licensure, and Certificates of Need. Additionally, he is highly sought-after for his experience with a wide range of transactional matters including the acquisition and divestiture of healthcare facilities and the formation of healthcare joint ventures.
