Buy/Sell of a Professional Practice


Whether you are expanding or retiring from your practice, it is crucial to protect your practice and yourself during the negotiation process. Certain clauses need to be addressed, including but not limited to restrictive covenants, allocation of funds and account receivables.

Buy/Sell or Leasing of Commercial Real Estate


As your practice grows, you may find yourself requiring a larger space. Whether you are buying, selling or leasing a commercial space, there are certain matters that need to be addressed to appropriately protect your rights.



Choosing the right legal entity is one of the most important decisions you can make when starting or expanding your practice.  We can counsel you on deciding the right legal structure in shielding your personal liability.

Partnership/Operating Agreements


As practices grow, taking in a partner or a new member to your corporation can be the next step to expanding your practice.  Partnership/Operating agreements can help define that relationship for a smoother transition.

Physician/Dentist Employment Contracts


Understanding the terms of your employment contract may be confusing. We will discuss your options and help you protect yourself and your career for the future.

Independent Contractor Agreements/Employment Contracts


Defining the type of relationship with your independent contractors and/or employees is important in a successful practice.  Certain considerations need to be taken into account such as IRS guidelines, state local and federal laws.


Ensuring that your office is HIPAA compliant can be an overwhelming and daunting challenge.  We can counsel you on all the necessary steps in order to become compliant pursuant to the law.

To discuss these and other concerns you may have, please contact us today for a free phone consultation.

STEPHANIE J. RODIN, ESQ. is the founder and principal of Rodin Legal, P.C. and has been practicing law since 1998, with a majority of that time assisting the healthcare professional.


Starting from a young age, Ms. Rodin has been exposed to the medical/dental field, as her immediate family all practice within the healthcare field.  As a result, she was surrounded by various medical and legal issues that routinely arose during the practice of medicine and dentistry.  This provided Ms. Rodin with the expertise that serves as the foundation of her legal practice.  Rodin Legal, P.C. caters to these legal complexities and is dedicated to the growth of professional practices.


Ms. Rodin began her legal career in commercial litigation, where she gained experience and knowledge in Corporate Law.  Thereafter, she became an Associate with a firm concentrating in plaintiff medical and dental malpractice matters.  She appeared in the Supreme Courts within all the New York City Counties, in addition to Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties.  Ms. Rodin handled all aspects of cases, from client intake to trials, including all Court conferences, depositions, settlement conferences and jury selections. After gaining this experience, she then began to focus her career on representing healthcare professionals in malpractice actions.


Just prior to opening her own practice, she successfully defended dentists in malpractice actions throughout the New York area.  Ms. Rodin worked closely with clients who specialized in all fields of dentistry, as well as dental experts and insurance carriers.


Working closely with various physicians and dentists, Ms. Rodin recognized the amount of effort it takes to ensure that office management runs smoothly, so that they can concentrate on providing the best care for their patients.  It’s this understanding that is the core of her practice.


Ms. Rodin received her J.D. from New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts.  Prior to this, she received a B.S. in Accounting from New York University's Leonard N. Stern School Of Business.


She is a member of the New York State Bar Association, New York City Bar Association, New York City Lawyer’s Association and the American Health Law Association.  She is also of counsel to the law firm of Spiegel Leffler, LLP, where she assists their clients with all of their practice needs.


Ms. Rodin is also on the Advisory Board of the organization Beyond the Boroughs, which works to raise money for scholarships to allow high school students to attend college.
