LaDale George

A highly experienced legal advisor and strategic counselor on regulatory compliance and business transactions, LaDale George concentrates his regulatory compliance practice on advising healthcare clients and his transactional counsel on healthcare and non-healthcare corporate matters.

LaDale guides clients engaged in traditional and innovative healthcare businesses through complicated regulatory frameworks, including FDA, OHRP, NIH, and ORI regulated clinical research, clinical development, and post-approval marketing compliance; telehealth/telemedicine and multi-state provider licensing compliance; Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute compliance; FTC and CMS regulated clinical integration, and federal research grant management compliance.

His corporate practice focuses on representing healthcare and non-healthcare businesses in corporate formations and governance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments, licensing arrangements, and joint ventures, including strategic affiliations and clinical integrations.

LaDale’s primary client base ranges from startups to Fortune 100 companies, including single hospital and multi-state large health systems, large physician practices, technology-enabled healthcare companies, small to midsize non-healthcare businesses, and small to large pharmaceutical, medical device and in vitro diagnostic companies.

In addition, LaDale reserves about 10 percent of his practice time to provide legal services to charitable organizations engaged in national and international social justice and advocacy campaigns, and disaster relief and reconstruction efforts. This portion of his practice is dedicated to advising clients on not-for-profit governance, federal tax-exempt compliance, and anti-terrorism financing compliance. As a founding member of the Treasury Guidelines Working Group, he advised the U.S. Department of Treasury on formulating and revising anti-terrorist financing guidelines for the not-for-profit sector.

LaDale currently serves on the board of directors for Muslim Advocates, a national legal advocacy and educational organization, and the board of the Muslim Bar Association of Chicago.
