Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli this month has earned top recognition for its Health Care Department by two prominent national organizations:  American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) and Modern Healthcare.

In May, Polsinelli opened its 21st office in Seattle with eight lawyers practicing in the areas of health care, government investigations, bankruptcy, and corporate and transactions. The firm’s vibrant health care, real estate, and intellectual property practices drove the firm to focus on expanding to the Pacific Northwest. These two most recent awards confirm Polsinelli’s strategy to provide a comprehensive geographic network of attorneys in the health care area.

This month, the firm ranked No. 1 in AHLA’s 2018 Top Honors report for the size of its membership within the organization. It is the nation’s second-largest health care law firm, according to Modern Healthcare’s 2018 Healthcare Law Firm Survey.

This is the ninth-consecutive year Polsinelli has earned a place on AHLA’s Top 10 Firms list. The ranking is based on the current number of AHLA member attorneys at the firm: 284, which is nearly a 9 percent increase over 2017.

Polsinelli has been highly ranked by Modern Healthcare for six straight years on its “Largest Healthcare Law Firms” list, securing the No. 2 position in 2018 with more than 255 health care attorneys who practice in offices from coast to coast.

 "We have worked hard to build a strong, national team of health care lawyers with experience that spans virtually every aspect of the health care continuum, as well as virtually every niche of practice,” said Polsinelli Health Care Department Chair Matt Murer. “We’re proud to be among the leading law firms in the country in health care law. These rankings recognize our team’s commitment to strive for excellence each and every day, and our firm’s pledge and investment to be a national leader in health care law.”

Earlier, Polsinelli received top recognition as the 2018 “Law Firm of the Year” in health care by U.S. News & World Report. As the firm’s Health Care Department continues to expand and serve as a national leader in a full-range of health care law services, its diverse mix of attorneys provide counsel that aligns legal strategies with clients’ unique and complex business objectives.

 “Representing health care providers across the country requires depth and experience in all facets of health care,” said Polsinelli Chairman and CEO Russ Welsh. “These recognitions affirm our capabilities across the nation. Under Matt’s able leadership we will continue to serve as trusted counsel throughout the ever evolving health care industry.”

One of the fastest-growing health care practices in the nation, Polsinelli’s team includes former in-house counsel of national health care institutions, the Office of Inspector General (OIG), and former U.S. Attorneys and Assistant U.S. Attorneys with direct experience in health care fraud investigations.

Polsinelli’s steady growth has contributed to its nationwide expansion, including the opening of the firm’s 21st office in Seattle to accommodate growing demand in the Pacific Northwest, as well as the recent addition of several high-profile health care attorney hires in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. offices, to name a few.
