Business

Administrative
Health Care

Administrative

Missouri and Kansas professionals are regulated by administrative boards that investigate complaints against their licensees, including: medical doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, dentists, nurses, and lawyers. The litigation concerning these administrative boards is often narrow in scope and broad in application as it is largely based on the regulations adopted by each agency and the administrate procedure acts in Kansas and Missouri. Administrative cases are unlike traditional litigation in that the discovery options and motions practice are limited, but the range of penalties, damages, and risk to your ability to practice is not.  Seen by many as an insider’s game, administrative litigation done properly is an opportunity for professionals to change outcomes and set precedent and practices. Logan Logan & Watson, L.C. offers effective representation in these special forums.
