Pharmacy Law Attorneys

What Kind of Legal Representation is Available For Pharmacists and Pharmacies?
The Norman Spencer Law Group provides a successful defense of pharmacists, pharmacies, and all other healthcare professionals. Our services include handling regulatory and enforcement issues in the pharmaceutical industry. We’ve represented pharmacy industry professionals with problems involving disciplinary action, false claims, licensure, employment matters, anti-kickback statutes, drug diversion allegations, PBM audits, and other related issues.
Our representation extends to pharmacy ownership issues, covering things such as employment issues, permits, licenses, selling and purchasing pharmacies, audits, and inspections. DEA and FDA registration falls under our scope of services, and so does representing pharmacists and pharmacies who might be facing enforcement action. Sometimes the daily workings of a business can lead to situations that result in harm or perceived harm, and that’s another area our legal team covers.
In addition to pharmacists and pharmacies, we also represent pharmaceutical distributors and manufacturers. We can help with matters that include state certification and permitting, DEA and FDA registration, and even the defense of criminal and administrative enforcement action as it pertains to your specific practice.
It takes hard work to become a pharmacist and build and grow your business in the industry. Earning your degree on its own takes years of schooling and hundreds of hours of clinical training. Then after that, getting the proper license involves completing an accredited program and passing two separate licensing examinations. Building up your business again takes years of effort, motivation, and plenty of dedication. While no amount of legal counsel can reduce the risk of litigation to completely zero, we can most definitely reduce it.
Consultations are available with members of our legal team for discussing specific issues and concerns that you might have anywhere along the way.
