Bruce D. Armon, a Partner in the Health Law Practice Group, talks about potential conflicts that can arise when family members work in the same healthcare practice.

"It is not uncommon to have multiple family members who are physicians, and for family reasons, they want to reside in the same community," Armon said. In these situations, he advises establishing conflicts of interest policies that clarify referrals, review processes and nepotism.
