Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli has been named the second-largest health care law firm in the nation by the American Health Law Association (AHLA).
AHLA’s Top Honors recognizes the organizations behind its members, including law firms, organizations, health plans, businesses and government agencies that sustain affiliation with AHLA. The Top 10 Organizations roster, which ranks Polsinelli at No. 2, for 2020 is based on the current number of AHLA member attorneys at the firm (284).
“With health care workers and providers on the frontline fighting the pandemic, we are committed to having one of the largest, multi-disciplinary teams in the county to ensure that we can provide our clients with comprehensive guidance and solutions to the unprecedented challenges that they are facing,” said Polsinelli Health Care Department Chair Matthew J. Murer. “We are proud supporters of the AHLA and are pleased to remain on its Top 10 Organizations roster in 2020. I applaud our terrific team of health care attorneys across the country who contributed to this recognition for their ongoing dedication and commitment to making our Department a national leader in health care law.”
Polsinelli’s national Health Care Department advises clients on the full range of hospital-physician lifecycle and business issues confronting health care providers across the United States. The Department has a diverse mix of attorneys, including former in-house counsel of national health care institutions and the Office of Inspector General. They practice alongside former leaders from various regulatory agencies and attorneys with advanced degrees and backgrounds in the health sciences.
Over the course of the pandemic, Polsinelli’s Health Care Department has assisted clients in a variety of matters ranging from FDA approvals for testing, development of comprehensive screening protocols for employees and patients, applying and accounting for federal support, development of crisis care protocols, assisting with the procurement of PPE, and fighting reimbursement disputes to ensure that providers are getting fairly paid for their hard work during this critical period.
Polsinelli’s Health Care Practice recently earned the highest ranking, Tier One, on U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 “Best Law Firms” report in Health Care Law, and the firm continues its streak of being nationally ranked in Health Care by Chambers USA (2015-2020).
“Excellence in healthcare requires excellence in health law,” comments Kerry Hoggard, AHLA’s Vice President of Membership. “It’s the dedicated health law professionals, like those at Polsinelli, that provide analysis, assess risk, ensure compliance, and serve as the stabling force within the healthcare industry. We thank Polsinelli, and our broader health law community, for their continued commitment to excellence in healthcare and AHLA.”
