McDermott Adds Health Care Partner from Paul Hastings


James Owens, formerly head of the healthcare practice at another major law firm, said he joined McDermott as a health transactions partner in the Los Angeles office because McDermott has the highest quality health care attorneys in the country, and that depth of talent drew him to the Firm. “I really was looking for a place that was high quality and dynamic, and where people understood what the industry was about, so I can continue to serve my client base in a way that brings industry expertise along with legal expertise,” Mr. Owens said regarding his work with provider organizations and suppliers.
