Medspa Legal & Legislation > California Laser Hair Removal Corporation

What % ownership does an MD need to have to comply with CA Law?
Does the clinic need to be licensed or certified by Dept of Public Health?
Can somebody recommend a lawyers specialized in this field in Los Angeles?
I have seen several similar questions but there is no clear cut answers nor a guide like some other type of businesses.
Thanks in advance for your time and help.

If you're not an MD, DO, RN, NP, or PA, you cannot "own" a medical practice in CA. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure, and lay persons can't own any "percentage" of a medical corp in CA. The law in CA is at least 51% ownership by MD or DO, and up to 49% by the following LICENSED healthcare professionals--RN, NP, PA.

Lawyers who "help" lay people skirt this law by fancy structuring are simply taking your money to help you break CA law. Medical "director" (rent-a-license) arrangements and "medical management organizations" are also not legal in CA.

If you're an MD or DO, the answer to your question is 51% ownership or more. If you're an RN, NP, or PA, the answer is up to 49% ownership WITH an MD or DO always retaining 51% or more.

If you're not any of the above mentioned licensed healthcare professionals, the problem is by illegally "owning" the practice, you'd be practicing medicine without a license.

Very thorough response, Cal. There should be a "like" button ;)
