Kate McDonaldMcDermott Will & Emery LLP

McDermott Will & Emery LLP offers a full slate of services for leading insurers and health networks. On the transactional front, the team expanded its private equity and venture capital work, advising groups such as Gigafund on their investments, and advising new insurance companies on working with venture capital groups. It also advised companies such as Ascension on the establishment of Medicare Advantage plans. Disputes are another area of expertise, with the team acting on claims cases, ERISA litigation and putative class actions. Particularly notable is the team’s regulatory and government advocacy team, with Washington DC-based partners Brian Stimson, Eric Zimmerman, Miami’s Jerry Sokol and DC’s Jason Caron providing support to healthcare trade organizations on the No Surprises Act. Jeremy Earl and Kate McDonald , also DC-based, provide strong regulatory support focusing on ACA compliance and government healthcare programs respectively. DC’s Ankur Goel is a well-respected litigator, and Gary Scott Davis leads transactions out of Miami. The team has also recently opened a new office in Atlanta.
