SOUTHFIELD, Mich., February 28, 2013 – Adrienne Dresevic, founding shareholder of Southfield, Mich.-based The Health Law Partners, recently served on a panel for the American Bar Association Health Law Section titled, “Stark Law Fundamentals.” Founding Shareholder Abby Pendleton made the announcement.
As a co-panelist for the webinar, Dresevic provided attendees a basic understanding of this complex area of health care law. With growing government oversight, Stark Law has broad implications on financial transactions and business agreements between physicians and health care providers. With the myriad array of federal regulations connected with law, Dresevic focused on how to identify potential Stark Law issues, discussed cutting-edge Stark Law developments and provided practical examples in which lawyers could encounter federal actions.
Dresevic leads HLP’s Stark and Anti-Kickback practice area, and the program stood as an excellent outlet to share her Stark Law expertise. She has devoted much of her practice to this area of law, and routinely counsels clients on compliance and preventative actions.
An avid writer and speaker, Dresevic has published more than 60 articles on health care law and presents at national conferences throughout the year. Dresevic’s practice encompasses the full spectrum of health care law. She received her juris doctorate from Wayne State University Law School, finishing second in her class magna cum laude, and was a member of the Order of the Coif.
