"A go-to attorney for clients seeking regulatory counsel."

Chambers and Partners

For more than 30 years, Jeff Schneider has been advising health industry clients on a wide range of regulatory matters and complex transactions.

Jeff's representations span the full spectrum of healthcare providers, including hospitals, academic medical centers, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospices, and other institutional health care providers, as well as physician groups, health networks, and managed care organizations. Jeff heads the firm's New York office Health practice.

Jeff has represented many of the top academic medical centers both in New York and nationwide. He has been involved in many "bet the company" transactions, often involving the acquisition or sale of an academic medical center's primary teaching hospital.

In addition to his transactional work, Jeff routinely counsels clients on compliance, governance, coverage and reimbursement, survey and certification, and faculty practice issues. He believes that the best client relationships are those that involve long-term, in-depth representations where he can help provide legal assistance and help, with an eye on the client's broader strategic initiatives and goals.
