Heyl Royster


Heyl Royster provides timely analysis and effective legal assistance to handle the operational challenges facing today’s healthcare industry.

Change is a constant for the American medical industry. From new medical technology and procedures to regulations and governmental scrutiny, it is critical to have a responsive and powerful legal team that stays ahead of the game. Heyl Royster's healthcare attorneys understand the time-sensitive nature of many healthcare issues and provide a clear analysis and recommendation to address whatever matter arises.

We recognize our clients' operational challenges and work to find solutions that keep them compliant with the ever-changing healthcare laws and healthcare regulations while still allowing them to achieve their strategic business goals. For many of our clients, we act as outside general counsel to provide legal advice and legal services. Heyl Royster’s roster of experienced healthcare attorneys represents various institutions’ governing boards, medical staff leadership, and administrative staff on a range of legal issues. We utilize a multidisciplinary team approach, collaborating with attorneys in our other practice areas to provide exceptional service and effective solutions.

Extensive Medical Industry Knowledge

Aside from adept litigation attorneys, our team includes staff with thorough inside knowledge of the healthcare industry. Former employees of healthcare regulatory agencies, past presidents of the Illinois Association of Healthcare Attorneys and the Illinois Society of Healthcare Risk Management, a former General Counsel of the Illinois Department of Public Health, and a former civil prosecutor are all part of our legal team. Our team draws on these experiences to assist in drafting or reviewing medical staff bylaws, counseling hospital management on labor and employment issues, and providing staff training in the workplace.
