Medical Licensing Boards

Medical professionals facing challenges to their licenses and accreditation regularly turn to Todd & Weld attorneys to represent them before the various licensing boards in Massachusetts, including the Board of Registration in Medicine.  Our health law attorneys have the collective knowledge and experience that can often make the difference between a positive and negative outcome in a disciplinary or licensing proceeding. 

Our intimate knowledge of each board's structure, policies, and procedures is a critical component of effective advocacy when a medical professional's license and reputation is on the line. The advice of counsel at the earliest opportunity in these matters can be essential to a successful resolution.

Our collective representation includes successfully handling many different issues associated with health care disciplinary and licensing matters, including allegations of:

  • Professional misconduct
  • Substandard care
  • Criminal charges
  • Disruptive behavior
  • Drug or alcohol impairment
  • Failure to adequately supervise
  • Improper prescribing practices
  • Problematic disclosures in licensing and credentialing submissions
