About Fenton Nelson

Fenton Nelson represents healthcare providers, including healthcare professionals, facilities, and other organizations, in litigation, business transactions, and regulatory matters. Although we are based in California, our practice is national in scope.


As a result of our landmark victories on behalf of California providers over the past 25 years, we have earned a reputation as a “go-to” firm for healthcare matters. Fenton Nelson is the only boutique firm in California to receive a Top-Tier Firm rating in regulatory and administrative law from U.S. News & World Report. Fenton Nelson attorneys defend healthcare providers in investigations before the Medicare Program and its contractors, the FDA, and the widest range of other federal and state regulatory agencies. The firm has tried cases and argued to the California Supreme Court on fraud and abuse, peer review, reimbursement, and healthcare administrative issues, and we negotiated a broad range of transactions for healthcare providers. The firm also provides counsel in transactional and compliance matters to enable clients to achieve their business objectives, implements compliance programs, and oversees compliance as outside counsel for hospitals, long-term and behavioral healthcare organizations, and life sciences companies.

Clients rely on our detailed knowledge and deep understanding of the complexities of the healthcare industries, from the widest range of physician organizations to skilled nursing facilities, medical device companies, hospice and home health providers, drug treatment, autism care, and countless other niches of healthcare practice. We make it our business to be up to date in the regulatory requirements with which firm clients are required to comply and to give strategic advice on the direction of change ahead. As a result, we are able to offer smart, effective counsel and representation in a manner that is highly responsive, efficient, and strategic.
