John W. Leardi, Esq.
- Member, Buttaci Leardi & Werner LLC
Mr. Leardi represents a diverse range of individual and institutional healthcare clients in both adversarial and transactional matters arising out of their business dealings and contracts. To that end, he regularly handles matters related to: corporate formation, restructuring, and dissolution; commercial contracts and leases; employer/employee relations; restrictive covenants; insurance coverage and reimbursement; business torts; administrative and regulatory compliance; health information technology; and the protection of confidential and proprietary information.
Mr. Leardi’s litigation practice includes a special emphasis on representing healthcare providers in reimbursement disputes, including: post payment audits; overpayment disputes and litigation; insurance fraud investigations and prosecutions; claims for unpaid or underpaid benefits; and facility rate-setting appeals. Because of his substantial experience in defending providers facing regulatory and payer scrutiny, Mr. Leardi has developed a substantial risk management practice, providing baseline compliance auditing to providers of all types and sizes, and assisting in implementing plans of corrective action, when needed.
