Nathan Powell’s work focuses on healthcare, and includes business transactions, regulatory compliance, real estate, and employment law. His practice combines these generally distinct service areas to create a unique, full service multidisciplinary practice for healthcare providers such as physicians, medical groups, ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals, clinics, dentists, physical therapists, and others. He assists clients with entity formation and maintenance, general business counseling, contracts, leases, purchase agreements, buy-sell agreements, operating agreements and related documents. Nathan also counsels clients on healthcare-specific issues, including consent, privacy, Anti-Kickback, Stark, False Claims Act, HIPAA, and related matters. He also assists healthcare providers in structuring their business transactions and relationships in compliance with the complex federal and state regulatory framework. Nathan counsels employers on day-to-day issues involving discipline, termination, leaves of absence, wage and hour, harassment and discrimination investigations and other employment related issues, as well as matters related to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the California Labor Commissioner.

Nathan has always enjoyed helping others navigate complex situations, and he found that friends and family would come to him for advice. Nathan loved being able to guide them through various challenges, and he knew that the practice of law would allow him to do this for his clients.

Outside of work, you’ll find Nathan spending time with his wife and three children. He’s also an 1980’s movie aficionado, and enjoys making his kids watch the classics, while they roll their eyes.
