Healthcare systems, hospitals, physicians and other healthcare providers confront multiple legal issues on a frequent basis. Chuhak & Tecson currently provides commercial litigation services to three of the largest healthcare systems in the State of Illinois. In addition, we represent more than a hundred physicians and physician practice groups as their outside counsel.
