Kronick Adds Healthcare Practice, Welcomes New Attorneys

Sacramento | February 6, 2015

Kronick Moskovitz Tiedemann & Girard is expanding its Sacramento headquarters, adding  a new healthcare component to its thriving business services practice.  At the helm of this expansion is healthcare attorney Lawrence B. ("Larry") Garcia, who joined Kronick's Sacramento office as a shareholder on Feb 2 along with Leonor Y. Dicdican.  Both come from the Sacramento office of Gordon Rees.

The addition of Garcia and Dicdican is the latest of several key hires by the firm in a strategic move to enhance and expand its business services practice and to add new service lines to its portfolio of practice areas to benefit both new and existing clients.  Bruce Scheidt, Managing Shareholder, said, "Larry's statewide health care practice seamlessly integrates with our other practice areas to leverage our valuable labor & employment, regulatory and business practices to serve more organizations."

In practice for almost 40 years, Garcia's experience encompasses the counseling and representation of clients in highly regulated business environments with a heavy concentration in providing support for healthcare providers, senior living providers, nonprofit corporations and small businesses.  Mr. Garcia's practice includes mergers, acquisitions, financings, commercial transactions, healthcare law, counseling and representation of clients before regulatory agencies, contracting, corporate compliance and facilitated conflict resolutions, as well as the representation of clients before regulators.

Dicdican, who joined the firm as senior counsel, represents clients with general business, corporate finance and healthcare matters.  Her clients range from large corporate entities to small business owners.  Specifically, in the healthcare field, she provides advice and counsel on matters involving managed care contracting, physician-hospital joint ventures, practice expansion opportunities, medical staff issues, physician contracting, incentive compensation arrangements, corporate practice of medicine issues, patient referrals, Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse, kickbacks and Stark law issues, and corporate restructuring.  She also advises health care clients on matters relating to HIPAA regulations as well as health information technology (HIT) and electronic health record (EHR) issues.   Additionally, she represents long term care and senior services providers in matters relating to acquisitions and sales, development and financing of facilities, and corporate compliance.

The firm looks forward to further expansion of its new healthcare practice in the months to come.
