Our People

We deliver practical, creative legal and business advice to health care providers. It has been our work and our passion for decades.


We have intentionally kept our team small and focused, as health care providers typically need senior-level advisers. For big projects, we draw on our extensive professional network for specialists and junior lawyers who supplement our capacity.
