About Us

THE CULLINANE LAW FIRM is a health law firm offering a wide array of legal services to health  care clients from Chicago to Saint Louis. The Firm has a reputation not only for excellent service and quality but also for resourcefulness, imagination and extra effort. We understand and cultivate those qualities that lead to long-standing relationships of trust and confidence.

            The firm is the logical extension of the health law practice begun more than thirty years ago by the firm’s principal, John Cullinane. The firm has been successful because it recognizes that excellent legal skills and instincts are only the starting point. Client service and responsiveness are guiding principles of the firm. So is the belief that common sense is a cornerstone of good law, law practice and business.

            The firm is focused on health care, the industry and its providers. The firm is devoted exclusively to the representation of hospitals, physician groups, and physicians. We understand and speak the language of health care providers.

            The firm’s principal, John Cullinane, holds a Masters Degree in Health Administration and has broad experience working at the highest echelons of hospital, health system and physician group leadership. He is a recognized speaker before provider and professional groups, both state and national. Over the years, he has spoken on forums sponsored by the American College of Health Executives, the Health Care Financial Management Association, the Catholic Health Association of the United States, the Illinois Hospital Association and the Metropolitan Chicago Hospital Council, among others. He has served as a member of the clinical faculty at the Saint Louis University School of Public Health and as adjunct faculty at Chicago-Kent College of Law.

            Areas of concentration within health law include corporate, acquisitions, financing, hospital/physician arrangements, entity formation, CEO employment agreements, managed care, academic medical practice plans, not-for-profit taxation, regulatory compliance (Anti-Fraud and Abuse, Stark, antitrust and taxation), contracting of all varieties, real estate, insurance and self-insurance, physician recruitment, surgery centers, policy formation, board governance and fiduciary duty.

            In the era of health care reform in which change has become the norm, we believe that effective and prompt communication and knowledge of the health care industry are critical. Our written reports to management and physician leadership are detailed, practical and as devoid of legalese as possible. We welcome the opportunity to provide references with current and former clients.
