Our Practices

Nora & Partners, LLP specializes in the defense of medical malpractice actions. We represent all types of healthcare providers, including hospitals, medical groups, physicians, psychologists, oral surgeons, dentists, nurses and other related health providers. Given our broad client base, our attorneys are well versed in every area of medicine and have access to renowned experts, both locally and nationally. We are recognized as a leading defense firm in the State of Illinois. The results we have secured for our clients, whether through early dismissal or by obtaining defense verdicts at trial, are second to none.

Nora & Partners, LLP also advocates for its physicians by providing analytical case statements for applications for hospital privileges and insurance coverage. Our ability to persuasively state the framework of a case results in privileges and insurance coverage being granted.

We defend our health care provider clients regarding payment and eligibility disputes with insurance companies and managed health care providers, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare and Medicaid.

Our firm also represents physicians, dentists and other health care providers regarding licensure and disciplinary proceedings before such entities as the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation. Disputes giving rise to such proceedings are often initiated from patient complaints or National Practitioner Data Bank reporting. We have been very successful in ensuring that our clients’ ability to practice healthcare arts remains unfettered.
