Meet David

David has been practicing law since 1994 and recently opened the Tampa Office of Lubell Rosen. David has focused his legal career almost exclusively on business arrangements among licensed health care providers, unlicensed entities in the business of hea lth care, insurers and other third-party payors. He represents clients in a wide variety of health care transactions.

David was an original board member of the Florida Association of Recovery Residences ("FARR") and represents substance abuse disorder (“SUD”) treatment providers, physician groups, clinics, clinical labs, lab managers, marketing and lead generation companies, billing companies and recovery residences and has been called upon to advise private equity concerns as well as other law firms. In addition, David has served as full-time chief legal officer to an A-rated insurance company group, a health care marketing company, and a substance abuse treatment provider. David also has litigated many medical malpractice and drug product liability cases in state and Federal courts.

David is very well-versed in laws governing the corporate practice of medicine, fee-splitting, kickbacks, self-referrals, scope of practice and supervision, privacy, insurance, false claims, health care marketing; as well as more general laws governing business entities.

As part of representing health care businesses, David has become expert with respect to general legal issues arising from space and equipment leases, loan documents, employment and contractor arrangements, human resource issues, wage-and-hour law, arrangements among owners within a business, and other general business arrangements not specifically related to health care or insurance.

David is licensed to practice law in both Florida and New York. Prior to practicing law, David spent several years working as a professional book editor in Manhattan. He is a prolific author of articles and blogs on current health law topics. While his primary office for Lubell Rosen is in the Historic Ybor District of Tampa, David regularly meets and serves clients throughout Florida.
