M. Scott LeBlanc

Scott LeBlanc is an associate in the firm's Labor, Employment & Immigration and Health Care Practice Groups. Scott represents a wide range of employers, including health systems, hospitals, physician groups, and other health care related organizations, with respect to employment law and health care regulatory issues.

Scott assists employers of all types during the hiring process, through employment terminations, and at all points in-between. In addition to advising clients on day-to-day employment issues such as disability accommodation, family and medical leave administration, wage and hour compliance, and avoiding employment discrimination, Scott regularly provides guidance with regard to labor and employment issues arising out of business sales, mergers and acquisitions, and other forms of corporate restructuring. Scott’s practice includes advising on the recruitment and termination of executive-level employees and drafting and reviewing employment, severance, confidentiality, and non-competition agreements for such individuals.

Scott‘s practice routinely includes advising clients both inside and outside of the health care industry on medical record privacy issues, including issues related to compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. Scott also works with the firm’s health care clients to ensure compliance with various federal and state laws, including the Medicare and Medicaid regulations, the Physician Self-Referral (Stark) Law, and the Anti-Kickback Statute.

Scott graduated cum laude from the Duke University School of Law, where he was an Executive Editor of the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy and a Staff Editor for the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Forum. He is a graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. Prior to law school, Scott worked as a news producer and reporter for CBS and FOX affiliate television stations in Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa.
