Svetlana (Lana) Ros, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., has been named Co-Chair of the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Committee for the Somerset County Bar Association (SCBA). As Co-Chair, she will be responsible for coordinating and organizing CLE programs for the year, including the association’s annual CLE Marathon Day.
Founded over 100 years ago, the SCBA is dedicated to public service and the enhancement of the legal profession by providing programs such as continuing legal education and legal referral services. Association members have included many prominent judges, legislators, and attorneys who have served New Jersey and Somerset County with distinction. The association promotes the highest standards of practice and encourages its members to contribute their time within both the legal community and the community at large.
Ros focuses her practice on health care law, specifically in the area of civil and administrative litigation, with a concentration in professional licensure and general defense before government agencies proving oversight to the practice of medicine and dentistry. She also handles transactional and regulatory matters affecting healthcare providers. Ros routinely represents healthcare professionals before federal agencies, including Medicare, Office of Civil Rights, and Office of the Inspector General, and state agencies such as Department of Banking and Insurance, Attorney General’s Office, and Department of Health.
Ros writes and lectures throughout New Jersey and New York on legal issues affecting healthcare professionals, such as over-prescribing of medications, inappropriate conduct of practitioners, general licensure, healthcare-related cybersecurity issues, fraud and abuse, medical records, HIPAA, and employment law.
As a member of the firm’s Cannabis Law Group, Ros draws on her extensive knowledge and background in dealing with regulatory agencies to assist health care providers and non-healthcare clients to navigate the complex and developing area of medical cannabis.
Ros earned her J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law and her B.S. in biotechnology and nutrition from Rutgers University.
