About Nelson Hardiman, LLP

Since its founding nearly two decades ago, Nelson Hardiman has become a name in health care law. Although based in California, the firm’s scope is nationwide as is its clientele.

Health Law Gurus

Nelson Hardiman was founded in the City of Angels in 2001 by Harry Nelson. The firm’s four core areas of focus are government investigations, litigation, regulatory compliance, and transactional matters. Its lawyers are experienced in handling government investigations and regulatory matters relating to the health care industry, including matters relating to DEA compliance, fraud, investigations by the FDA, and HIPPA compliance. The firm and its lawyers have been recognized by such publications as The Legal 500, U.S. News and World Report, Best Lawyers in America, Southern California Super Lawyers, and Benchmark Litigation for their work in health care law.

Nelson Hardiman attorneys have represented all levels of clients in the health care industry on a range of litigation matters. The firm’s work includes handling issues relating to the False Claims Act, fraud, licensing, and other issues. The firm is on top of the ever-changing regulatory landscape as it relates to the health care industry and aims to provide ongoing counsel to clients in that regard.

The firm has also provided counsel in health-related transactional and compliance matters, including corporate finance, distressed financing, M&A, new ventures, strategic affiliations, and private equity. Its work has included developing a 50-state post-acquisition regulatory filing plan for a client; serving as Chief Restructuring Officer in a hospital’s Chapter 11 proceeding; and advising on Clayton Act and Sherman Act merger cases.

One for All

At Nelson Hardiman, “diversity” isn’t merely a buzz word—something that comes through clearly in its associates’ survey responses. The firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee meets every month. Firm attorneys participate in a variety of diversity-related professional organizations. And the firm aims to provide resources such as mentoring, training, and flexible work schedules to meet the unique needs of each attorney.
