McGlinchey Stafford LLP is pleased to announce James J. Eischen, Jr. has joined the firm’s Irvine, Calif. office as a Member. Eischen, a seasoned health care attorney, will work within the firm’s Health Care and Business Transactions practice groups.
Eischen has nearly 30 years of varied experience in business, health care, and real estate, and is a national authority and speaker within the direct/private medical law and communications fields. He is recognized nationally for his federal compliance experience, structuring consumer/patient financial contribution and reimbursement models for private/concierge medical groups and health care IT product developers.
“We are excited to welcome Jim to our Irvine office,” said J-P Perrault, who heads McGlinchey Stafford’s Business Transactions practice group. “His extensive knowledge of health care practice formation and structuring adds depth to our team. Additionally, his insight assisting companies with their health care options and incentives is key to our clients, as this is a challenge nearly every employer faces thanks to evolving federal regulations and guidelines.”
Eischen’s broad health care practice also includes life science company/start-up enterprise support, integrating physician and wellness models, navigating the corporate practice of medicine, and related compliance issues. He advises physicians, health plans, and business enterprises in matters connected to reimbursement, contracts, interdisciplinary health professional employment and labor issues, and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. Additionally, Eischen is well-versed in the fast-growing membership-based connected care, direct primary care (DPC), and concierge medical practice enterprise models, and newer “connected care” models that are innovating U.S. primary care delivery.
Eischen also handles a wide range of health care business, including physician independent practice associations (IPAs) as well as physician practice purchase and employment transactions. He also works with companies that deliver wellness products and programs to ensure their compliance with reimbursement and privacy laws and regulations.
“My practice is focused on helping companies find ways to make health care work for them, and helping physicians structure their practices optimally for doing business in today’s marketplace,” said Eischen. “McGlinchey Stafford’s client-first focus and commitment to innovative service are a natural fit for me and I look forward to leveraging the firm’s national footprint as I continue to expand my practice.”
Eischen received his J.D. from the University of California at Davis in 1987, and his B.A. from Creighton University in 1984.
McGlinchey Stafford’s Irvine office, founded in 2013, has grown to 10 attorneys serving the firm’s clients across the state in commercial litigation, consumer financial services litigation, health care, and labor and employment matters.
