General Legal Counsel For Texas Pharmacies And Pharmacists
Lawyer Alejandro Mora helps with the operation of existing businesses. If you are a pharmacy, we can help you maintain regulatory compliance, defend you before any regulatory agency, and appeal any overpayment or payor audit.
We also handle mergers and acquisitions of pharmacy groups and facilities. Regulations have a big impact on buying and selling pharmacy businesses. Attorney Alejandro Mora has the detailed experience and knowledge to navigate the complex regulatory issues involved with these transactions. We focus on making the process smooth while meeting our clients’ business goals.
We handle all administrative agency complaints and actions against pharmacy professionals. Specifically, we seek to protect our clients’ businesses or livelihoods when they face allegations of fraud or sanctions from state and federal agencies, including Medicare and Medicaid.
We handle all license-related issues. We work for pharmacy companies and individual pharmacists who must comply with state licensing board requirements. We walk clients through the process of obtaining licenses, as well as with long-term compliance issues. If they fall under scrutiny or are investigated, we are prepared to defend pharmacists in front of their boards and take steps necessary to minimize all penalties and negative consequences.
With increasing frequency, we provide sound advice to our clients regarding how to avoid and respond to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Office of the Inspector General (the “OIG”), or the Texas State Board of Pharmacy involving allegations of overprescribing narcotics, violating the federal anti-kickback statute, or any other regulatory investigation. An investigation by the DEA or the OIG can lead to loss of your federal DEA registration, affect your state board pharmacy license and possibly result in criminal charges as well. We help pharmacies at any stage of a DEA registration dispute or OIG investigation and work to protect their licenses.
