Nelson Hardiman represents physicians who specialize in aesthetic medicine. We are known for our deep experience and successful track record in accomplishing the goals of our aesthetic medicine providers and medical spa clients. We counsel on business issues, protect against regulatory investigations, and defend high stakes litigation.

Our attorneys understand the legal issues impacting aesthetic medicine providers and handle the most sensitive challenges. We establish compliance programs in response to government investigations and defend against Medical Board accusations. And because California’s ramped-up enforcement measures focus on illegal ownership structures and regulatory concerns, we thoroughly review the corporate and operational structures of our aesthetic medicine provider clients to ensure compliance with the state’s regulatory environment. Whatever the challenge, Nelson Hardiman has the experience and resources to resolve the problems, issues and concerns of aesthetic medicine providers.
