United States: Industry focus

Healthcare: health insurers

Within: Healthcare: health insurers

Operating on the 'leading edge' of the industry', McDermott Will & Emery LLP 'has compiled a team of experts covering every aspect of healthcare law'. It is known for advising on the regulatory aspects of major M&A deals, such as CVS Health's $69bn acquisition of Aetna, which saw Chicago-based Joan Polacheck lead a team including Washington DC partners Kate McDonald, Ankur Goel and Jeremy Earl. Other main areas of expertise include dispute resolution in relation to government investigations, anti-kickback rules and reimbursement laws, healthcare advocacy efforts, as well as data breach and digital health matters. Together with LA-based trial lawyers Tom Ryan and Greg Jones, Chicago antitrust partner Stephan Wu represented The Permanente Group against a hospital group which accused the client and its insured of creating a healthcare monopoly in California. In Boston, the 'excellent' global practice group leader Stephen Bernstein and 'world-class subject matter expert' Christopher Jedrey are recommended, while 'leading healthcare compliance lawyer' Eric Gordon in Los Angeles is another name to note.

With 'an excellent reputation in the non-profit sector', McDermott Will & Emery LLP 'stands out for its experience, attention to detail and thoughtful approach to problem-solving'. Regulatory managed care and health system advice, private equity transactions and joint ventures, healthcare technology and litigation are four of the team's key pillars of service.

An ongoing highlight for 'first-rate transactions lawyer' Bernadette Broccolo in Chicago and 'excellent tax advisor' Robert Louthian in Washington DC is their work for an international specialty hospital and research institute on the design and implementation of a data and technology license venture aimed at providing diagnostic artificial intelligence solutions. In Chicago, clients recommend the 'very intelligent' Sandra DiVarco, who collaborated with Kerrin Slattery on several change-of-ownership transactions involving client Presence Health, as well as 'excellent communicators' Monica Wallace and Joshua Buchman. Eric Gordon in Los Angeles and Gary Davis in Miami are other names to note.
