Areas of Practice

Ms. Solomon’s practice is focused on representing healthcare entities and not-for-profit corporations on a large range of transactional and regulatory and compliance matters. Ms. Solomon’s practice is also focused on representing Debtors and Creditors in chapter 7 and chapter 11 bankruptcies.

Ms. Solomon advises not-for-profit corporations on issues relating to entity formation, governance, corporate transactions (mergers, asset sales, dissolutions), compliance with state not-for-profit laws and qualification for tax-exempt and public charity status.

Ms. Solomon also advises clients on  regulatory and compliance matters, including with respect to issues relating to the corporate practice of medicine, the Anti-Kickback Statutes, the federal  Stark Law, fraudabuse issues, MACRA and reimbursement.

Ms. Solomon previously worked on a Pro Bono team that won asylum for a client from Nigeria. Their client was bringing an asylum claim based on both religious and social group persecution. He had a criminal conviction for entering the United States illegally and thus was placed in defensive asylum proceedings. Ms. Solomon and her team defended their client in immigration court in New York and received a full grant of asylum in February 2016.
