Professional Liability/Claim Prevention

These are extraordinary times in health care. At Bassford Remele, our team has been serving medical practitioners of all sizes, from solo providers and managed care companies to long-term care facilities and major hospital systems, for almost four decades. As regular presenters and participants in regional and national health care law conferences, we have stayed in front of today’s rapidly changing health care environment, and we are recognized by peers as leaders in health care law.

We are the “go-to” firm for major health care organizations in the Twin Cities and beyond. We have far-reaching experience that has earned us a reputation as well-prepared, professional, and committed to every health care case we handle. Our experience ranges from privacy concerns and patient care issues including CMS and Joint Commission investigations, to medical malpractice, credentialing disputes, licensing board matters, and more.
