January 1, 2014 -- McDermott Will & Emery’s Health Industry Advisory Practice Group has been named a “Health Practice Group of the Year” for the second consecutive year by leading legal news outlet, Law360.
Law360 Practice Groups of the Year are selected based on the significance of the transactional, litigation and regulatory wins or deals worked on; the size and complexity of the litigation wins or deals worked on; and the numbers of significant, large or complex deals the group worked on between November 1, 2012 and November 1, 2013.
Law360 recognized the role of McDermott lawyers advising health care industry players in some of the largest and most significant transactions of 2013. For example, McDermott represented Premier, Inc. a prominent U.S. health care alliance with respect to its $800 million+ initial public offering, and counseled many of the nation’s top hospitals and health systems on M&A and other consolidation efforts as well as physician practice acquisitions and civil antitrust matters.
“We are delighted to once again be recognized by Law360,” said Stephen Bernstein, partner and international head of the Firm's Health Industry Practice Group. “No other firm can match McDermott’s breadth and depth of practice and comprehensive business approach. We are one of the very few health practices in the U.S. that offers complete transactional and regulatory advice by lawyers who practice full-time in the health industry.”
McDermott lawyers counsel leading organizations in every major sector of the health care industry on regulatory, compliance, litigation, and business transaction matters. More than 90 attorneys in the health law group regularly work with McDermott colleagues in other practice areas to provide a level of comprehensive expertise not found at other law firms.
McDermott is the only law 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, U.S. News–Best Lawyers and Law360. For the fourth consecutive year, Chambers USA ranked the Firm’s health practice as the only firm in Tier 1 in the United States (2010–2013).
