Medical Practices

Hasti Daneshvar provides dedicated corporate and transaction services to members of the health care industry. She represents health care professionals, including new practicing physicians and health care businesses in various aspects of their practices.

As a member of a family of doctors, I have a great deal of respect for the medical community which has led me to represent many physicians and medical offices where I negotiate contracts on behalf of individual physicians, physician practice groups, medical offices, and other health care providers.  Professional Medical Corporations

Practicing medicine as a California professional medical corporation can be advantageous over practicing as a sole proprietor or partnership. In California, professional medicine practices may only operate in the form of a corporation by forming a California professional medical. Among these benefits of incorporating a professional practice as a California professional medical corporation are the ability to:

  • Limit personal liability against creditors and lawsuits
  • Obtain business credit without making a personal guarantee;
  • Reduce self-employment taxes for shareholders earning wages;
  • Pass profits and losses through to shareholders, thus avoiding double
    taxation
  • Receive fringe benefits
