Polsinelli welcomes Kyle A. Vasquez to the firm’s growing Health Care practice where he will serve clients nationally from Chicago. Vasquez brings experience to the firm as a former industry consultant and a graduate of Loyola University School of Law’s postgraduate program in Health Care Law. He focuses his practice on 340B drug discount programs, including audit and compliance, reimbursement and enrollment strategy, and physician-hospital arrangements.
“I’m excited to join Polsinelli with its wealth of resources coast to coast and its commitment to health care clients,” says Vasquez, who earned his law degree from John Marshall Law School and attended the University of Illinois. “Right now is an exciting time to be a health care attorney, and I look forward to collaborating with this team and its business-minded approach to helping providers manage current challenges.”
The American Health Lawyers Association also recently released its own national rankings, placing Polsinelli second among national law firms. Modern Healthcare lists Polsinelli as the third largest Health Care practice in the nation, based on its 2014 survey of the industry.
“We’ve built a select team of 190 health care attorneys and professionals across the country who make it their priority to understand the opportunities and challenges facing the industry, and more importantly, their clients’ businesses,” said Health Care chair Matt Murer from his Chicago office. “Kyle is a great addition to that team. He works collaboratively with stakeholders to help identify creative, forward-thinking models that meet clients’ financial and operational needs.”
Polsinelli is the fastest growing law firm in America for the past six years according to The American Lawyer.* This year, the firm moved up to the AmLaw 100 holding the #93 position. In 2014, the firm moved up to the 62nd position in The National Law Journal’s ranking of the largest U.S. based law firms. Polsinelli focuses on finding practical solutions for clients in health care, financial services, real estate, life sciences and technology, energy and business litigation matters.
Murer, Vasquez and the other Polsinelli health care attorneys are available to speak to the media about the current state of the health care industry.
