Shannon Coleman Egle's extensive legal knowledge, coupled with a practical and responsive approach, allows her to help her clients achieve their business goals, which ultimately results in their businesses operating more smoothly and profitably.  Her practice areas include healthcare regulation and transactions and general business consulting and transactions, as well as real estate acquisition and development.  She represents hospitals, physician organizations, individual physicians, physician practice management companies, and a host of other business and professional entities.

Ms. Coleman Egle devotes the time required to fully understand her clients' businesses, the personalities of the players within their businesses, the specific industries involved, and the rules governing their businesses.  She individually tailors her counsel to work within each client's business framework and helps her clients develop solutions to issues that arise day-to-day or within a particular transaction.  For instance, in her healthcare practice, since healthcare reimbursement and regulation are constantly changing, she helps her clients determine the best course of action within the current environment and re-evaluate that course of action periodically as the healthcare environment changes.
