Sharon C. Peters

Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP

Sharon Peters is an experienced health care regulatory practitioner, management side employment lawyer, and strategic thinker who delivers practical, cost-effective solutions that align with clients’ objectives.

Hospitals, health systems, and other health care providers turn to Sharon for advice on medical staff and peer review, personnel issues, and state and federal regulatory compliance. She provides counsel regarding challenging patient and workforce issues, including difficult discharges, workplace violence prevention and response, consent for treatment and health care decision-making, state and federal administrative investigations of alleged discrimination or privacy breaches, policy drafting and revisions, and various other provider operations. Sharon is committed to guiding Catholic and faith-based health systems through a complex regulatory world consistent with her clients’ mission and ethical directives.

Additionally, hospitals and physician leadership seek Sharon’s advice concerning medical staff, credentialing, peer review, and quality improvement issues. She also drafts and revises medical staff governance documents and provides counsel to clients during medical staff proceedings, from early in the proceedings through fair hearings.

Besides her health work, Sharon has a robust management-side employment practice. She advises and defends employers on a wide range of employment law issues, including disability accommodations, leaves of absence, discrimination and harassment, restrictive covenants, wage and hour, terminations, and federal and state law compliance. She also conducts workplace investigations and implements creative and effective employment policies and practices.

In both the health care and employment law settings, Sharon is a trusted advisor and problem solver, always investigating ways to resolve and avoid risk. When litigation cannot be avoided, she approaches the case aggressively, with attention to detail and the objective of preventing a trial by securing an early dismissal. Her early investigative and crisis management strategies help clients manage or avert altogether liability exposure and media scrutiny that can tarnish their reputation.

Sharon is a frequent speaker who enjoys working with clients to develop best practices for claims avoidance.

Sharon serves on Epstein Becker Green’s National Health Care and Life Sciences Steering Committee. Before joining Epstein Becker Green, she was a partner of a national law firm and a member of its Healthcare and Labor & Employment Practices.
