LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2022 — King & Spalding healthcare partner Daron Tooch has been named one of 2022’s Top Healthcare Lawyers in California by the Daily Journal.

With decades of trial experience, Tooch has tried over 100 cases before juries, judges and arbitrators in federal, state and administrative courts.
