The health care marketplace is marked by unprecedented opportunity, innovation and rapid change. Such a dynamic industry demands highly proficient legal and regulatory advisors who understand the nuanced complexity of the health care environment, and who draw from a deep well of “hands on” business and operational experience. McDermott’s health care team is the best in the legal industry, helping clients successfully navigate regulatory requirements and seize business opportunities.
Major legal directories have identified McDermott as the undisputed leader in health care law. We are the only firm to receive Tier 1 national rankings by The Legal 500 USA, U.S. News-Best Lawyers and Chambers USA—which in 2016 ranked our health team as the only national Band 1 practice for the seventh consecutive year. Our health law practice is also recognized as a Tier 1 practice in California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts and Washington, DC, and our German health team is ranked in Tier 1 by Chambers Europe.
Our services to clients are comprehensive. We serve as general or special counsel on engagement-specific bases to many of the country’s leading integrated delivery and academic medical center health systems, hospitals, large medical groups, health private equity funds, ambulatory surgery centers and their management companies, physician and dental practice management companies, nursing home chains, health technology companies, home health agencies, health maintenance organizations and other health insurers, and hospices. We also represent medical device, pharmaceutical and medical supply manufacturers and distributors. By building multidisciplinary teams of specialists, we are committed to engaging with all types of health care organizations as a trusted, knowledgeable and innovative advisor.
