HEALTH CARE ANTITRUST ATTORNEYS FOR PHYSICIANS
The health care markets in which physicians practice have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. These markets continue to evolve and change, and with these changes have come many challenges for physicians. Some of these changes are positive. Advances in technology, for example, have permitted physicians to offer their patients a higher level of care. Advances in pharmaceuticals and treatment methods permit physicians to treat diseases that were once thought incurable.

Some of the changes in health care markets, however, have resulted in a steady deterioration in the ability of physicians to: (a) treat their patients in a manner they consider best, and (b) earn an appropriate level of compensation for their services. Today, physicians face very large and powerful health insurers that can simply set the level of remuneration they will pay physicians. These health insurers will also, on occasion, establish guidelines that exert significant control on how physicians practice medicine. The efforts taken by physicians to address the challenges created by large health insurers include, for example, the creation of independent practice associations. These efforts and other collaborative efforts can raise antitrust issues under certain conditions.

Mr. Sanders has been a litigator for more than 20 years. He has spent a considerable portion of his practice working on a broad range of complex litigation matters including antitrust, trade secrets, consumer fraud, civil RICO, securities fraud and insurance coverage.

In 1990, Mr. Sanders was admitted to the New York Bar, the U.S. District Court Southern District of New York, as well as the U.S. District Court Eastern District of New York. He is not currently licensed to practice in the state of New York. He now practices in the state of Illinois, admitted in 1994 to the Illinois Bar. He is also currently admitted in several prestigious U.S. courts including: U.S. District Court Northern District of Illinois, 1994; U.S. Court of Appeals 2nd Circuit, 1993; U.S. Court of Appeals 7th Circuit; and the U.S. Supreme Court.
