Alex Keoskey’s practice focuses on healthcare litigation and complex regulatory compliance issues for the firm’s healthcare and litigation groups. His primary area of expertise is defending physicians, dentists, chiropractors, pharmacists, nurses and public and private health care entities in myriad employment, administrative and regulatory compliance challenges, including the handling of disciplinary actions brought by state licensing boards, investigations brought by OIG, FDA, DEA and other government agencies, employment law claims, medical malpractice actions, billing-related fraud claims and other actions brought against health care facilities and individual providers by government entities, third party insurers and private parties. Alex regularly litigates such matters in state and federal court, the N.J. Office of Administrative Law and before hospital hearing committees.

Since 2003, Alex currently serves as litigation and compliance counsel for the North Hudson Community Action Corp., a federally qualified health center (“FQHC”) accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO). The North Hudson Community Action Corp. has over 750 employees, at over 22 locations in Hudson, Bergen, and Passaic counties.

Later, he was assigned to the Professional Boards Prosecution Section handling matters assigned by the N.J. Boards of Medical Examiners, Pharmacy, Dental Examiners, Chiropractic Examiners, Optometrists, Nursing and Physical Therapy.

Attorneys on PBI’s faculty are chosen based on their legal knowledge relating to healthcare law and regulation. Alex frequently lectures before physicians, hospitals and other health organizations regarding regulatory compliance and the impact of licensing board, insurance company, civil malpractice claims and hospital privilege actions and has authored several published articles in both medical and legal professional journals. He is also an active member of the American Society of Medical Association Counsel and is certified by the American Society of Professional Coders (AAPC) as a Professional Health Compliance Officer. Alex also provides continuing legal education through the National Business Institute (NBI), The N.J.

Superior Court, U.S. District Court, the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law, New Jersey Workers Compensation Courts, and other tribunals within New Jersey and is certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Attorney, one of only 2% of such attorneys in our state.
