Michael Peregrine and Kerrin Slattery were quoted in Chicago Lawyer (January 2010) on the evolution of the health law field. Ms. Slattery cited the trend in which many community-based hospitals and small stand-alone hospitals have been combined into larger health systems, and said that health reform legislation could "change the way health care facilities deliver services in general, and therefore the landscape of legal services sought and delivered will also change." Mr. Peregrine added that this, along with other complex health sector developments in the past five to seven years, means that health provider organizations "are relying more on their in-house attorneys for less complex matters in an effort to save on costs, and enlisting [outside counsel] to do more regulatory, executive compensation and transactional work that is beyond the expertise of the in-house staff."
