HPS Advise: Partnering with Healthcare Clients to bridge the gap between risk and quality

HPS Advise, the consulting subsidiary of the law firm of Hall Prangle & Schoonveld, LLC, was established as a platform to leverage HPS' vast experience in dealing with the legal, clinical and business issues facing today's healthcare providers, practice groups, hospitals and health systems. HPS Advise is dedicated to partnering with our clients in pursuit of innovative solutions to reduce risk, improve patient care and achieve optimal outcomes in handling claims.  HPS is particularly impactful in the birth trauma arena and in the opioid arena.  

Based on the scope of the engagement, HPS Advise can assemble a national team from a roster of battle-tested trial lawyers, physicians, nurses and quality and risk management experts, who have spent decades investigating, analyzing and defending malpractice allegations by advocating for healthcare providers. Our unique platform promotes collaboration with clients in a flexible and creative fashion that leads to the proactive implementation of systems and solutions that enhance our clients' productivity and profitability. Importantly, it does so with the privileges and protections associated with an attorney-client relationship.
