Eric C. Boughman


Forster Boughman

Eric Boughman leads the firm's healthcare and technology practices.  He relies on a diverse background to solve complex legal issues for healthcare and medical professionals, businesses and business owners, investors, and entrepreneurs.


Eric spent the first decade of his career as a commercial litigator representing clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to local business owners, professionals, physicians, group practices, and tech startups in complex legal disputes.  Eric has settled and tried cases involving contract breaches, partnership/joint venture/corporate/shareholder disputes; real estate leasing, purchasing, development and other contract matters; business torts; licensing, franchising, trade secrets, theft, infringement, and breach; fiduciary claims, and professional licensing and professional negligence claims, fiduciary claims, and asset preservation and defense.


Over time, a significant portion of Eric’s practice involved representing companies, groups, and individuals in the medical and technology industries.  As his expertise in these areas grew, and as healthcare and technology have become increasingly intertwined, Eric identified a void in comprehensive legal services specifically tailored to fulfill the needs to healthcare professionals, group practices, tech companies, and their entrepreneurial leaders.  This led Eric to obtain a Certificate in Health Law and expand his practice to provide a full range of comprehensive legal services, including regulatory, transactional, and general counsel for companies in the healthcare, technology, and med-tech space.


With a desire to help his client protect the fruits of their labor, coupled with an understanding that the risk of litigation is ever-present, Eric has for several years developed strategies to protect assets against known and unforeseen risks.  Today, Eric’s asset protection and preservation practice is nationally known.  He represents clients across the country and is regularly called upon to educate lawyers and other professionals on asset protection strategies.


Eric is a frequent writer and presenter on issues involving health law, privacy, technology, and asset protection. His writings have appeared in multiple American Bar Association publications, The Florida Bar Journal, Forbes, Daily Business Review, Accounting Today, Financial Advisor Magazine, Law360, and CEO World, among others.  Eric also co-authored The Law of Artificial Intelligence, published by the ABA in 2019, and he is the editor of the Florida Health, Tech, and Law Resource.


Eric is rated AV–Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell.  He has been admitted to practice law in Florida and Nevada, as well as in the U.S. Tax Court, and in several other courts, nationwide, pro hac vice.  He is a member of the ABA’s Healthcare Law Section, Business Law Section, and Cyberspace Law Committee, the American Healthcare Lawyers Association, and American College of Healthcare Executives.
