About the program:
A discussion of the legal obligations, ethical duties and practical considerations involved in terminating your law practice – whether planned or unplanned.  Attorneys don’t practice forever – we retire, get sick, and die.  The Rules of ethics and California laws have some specific requirements in all three situations that you should be aware of, and the panelists can give you some practical ideas about how to approach to planning for the future.

The healthcare industry is a political football and faces significant financial headwinds. The result is a consistent stream of bankruptcy cases in the healthcare industry.  Currently the second largest hospital bankruptcy case in American history is pending in Los Angeles.  Many other hospitals have filed chapter 11 or chapter 9 cases in California, including the recently completed Gardens Regional Hospital and West Contra Costa Health Care District cases, as have large skilled nursing facilities operators.  This panel will discuss the intersection of the Bankruptcy Code, healthcare statutes and regulations, and not-for-profit law, and its impact on healthcare bankruptcy cases, including unique issues related to the Attorney General’s review of not-for-profit sales, the treatment of the Medicare and Medi-Cal provider agreements, the treatment of donor restricted funds, and other issues.
