Founding Partner

Daniel B. Frier, Esq. co-founded the healthcare law firm of Frier Levitt, LLC in 2000, and is Chairman of the firm’s Healthcare Department after many years of dedicating his practice to representing all manner of healthcare providers across the full gamut of healthcare-related legal matters. Dan graduated from Franklin & Marshall College in 1990 before he went on to pursue a Juris Doctor from Temple University School of Law, where he graduated cum laude in 1994, and was editor of the “Temple Law Review.”

Dan’s 20+ years of healthcare law experience includes the representation of a diverse group of healthcare clients, including healthcare providers such as physicians, physician groups, pharmacies, ambulatory surgical centers and imaging centers, sleep centers and laboratories concerning corporate, transactional and regulatory issues. He also provides clients with strategic advice on how to adjust their operations to keep pace with the quickly changing healthcare marketplace. Dan works with clients on practice formations and sales, fraud and abuse and Stark counseling, buy-sell agreements, employment issues, large group practice mergers, HIPAA compliance, and governmental, Professional Board and medical staff investigations. Because so much of healthcare law is federal in nature, Dan has clients across the country, and has a national presence in the formation of large group medical practices.
