Daniel B. Frier

Founding Partner

Daniel B. Frier, Esq. co-founded Frier Levitt in 2000, and has practiced exclusively in the field of health care law since graduating from Temple Law School in 1994, where he graduated with honors, and was editor of the Temple Law Review.  Dan co-chairs of the firm’s Healthcare Department and focuses his extensive practice on the representation of a wide range of health care clients, including physicians, medical and dental practices, management services organizations (MSOs), clinically integrated networks (CINs), hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers and other ambulatory services centers, laboratories, health care information technology (IT) companies, and private equity-backed investors.   For these clients, Dan handles a wide range of corporate, transactional and regulatory issues, including corporate formations and restructuring, super-group medical practice formation, counseling on clinical integration, value-based and other payer negotiations, m&a transactions, state and federal fraud & abuse counseling, HIPAA compliance hospital-physician ventures, data contracts, MSO structuring, employment matters, ASC syndication, start-up counseling, medical staff representation and actions against physicians’ hospital privileges, state board of medical examiners’ actions, and a variety of other work.  Dan also provides clients with strategic advice on how to adjust their operations to keep pace with the quickly changing healthcare marketplace. Because so much of health care law is federal in nature, Dan has clients across the country, and has a national presence in the formation of large group medical practices and CINs.

Dan is a frequent lecturer across the country on issues such as group practice formation, clinically integrated networks, value-based contracting models, fraud and abuse compliance, data contracting, and other health law related topics.
