Clinic Licensing Laws
Saphier and Heller attorneys provide advice concerning California clinic licensing laws, which can present significant legal issues, as the law generally prohibits the operation of a clinic without a license, and at the same time defines “clinic” very broadly. If you are questioning whether a place in which any particular type of medically-related activities are conducted constitutes a “clinic” under the law, the answer is probably “yes.”
A peculiarity of the California law is that most clinic operations are not eligible for licenses. However, exemptions from licensing are available for many types of clinics. We assist our clients in identifying appropriate exemptions when available and structuring transactions to satisfy the requirements for such exemptions.
