January 24, 2013 -- McDermott Will & Emery’s Health Industry Advisory Practice Group has been named a “Health Practice Group of the Year” by leading legal news outlet, Law360.
Law360 recognized the role of McDermott lawyers advising health care industry players in some of the largest and most significant transactions of 2012. These transactions included the billion dollar affiliation of two major not-for-profit health systems to create a fully integrated non-profit, charitable healthcare system serving numerous communities in the Northwest.
McDermott lawyers counsel leading organizations in every major sector of the health care industry on regulatory and business transaction issues. Nearly 90 attorneys in the health law group regularly turn to McDermott colleagues in other practice areas to provide a level of comprehensive expertise not found at other law firms.
“With this most recent recognition by Law360, McDermott remains the undisputed leading law firm in health care. We are not content, however, to rest on our laurels. We are committed every hour of every day (and night) to continuously strive to provide practical, creative, cost-effective and value added legal services to our clients based on our experience and industry knowledge,” said Stephen Bernstein, partner and international head of the Firm's Health Industry Advisory Practice Group.
McDermott is the only firm to receive Tier 1 rankings in health care nationally by all of the industry’s top legal directories: Chambers USA, The Legal 500 USA and U.S. News–Best Lawyers. For three consecutive years Chambers USA ranked McDermott’s health practice as the only firm in Tier 1 in the United States (2010–2012).
