King & Spalding Taps Two Partners From Healthcare Boutique for L.A. Office


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2018 — King & Spalding announced today that Glenn Solomon and Daron Tooch have joined the firm as partners on the Healthcare team in the Los Angeles office.

Solomon and Tooch represent healthcare providers in litigation and other disputes, and come from the healthcare-focused firm of Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, where Solomon served as co-chair of the Litigation Department, and where Tooch served on the Board of Directors and as a past chair of the Litigation Department. Solomon and Tooch were co-founders of the firm’s Managed Care Working Group.

“We have followed Glenn and Daron’s careers for some time so we know of their excellent reputation on healthcare matters, particularly in managed care disputes,” said Jim Boswell, head of King & Spalding’s Healthcare team, which is part of the Government Matters practice group. “Their addition to the team will help us to expand our healthcare bench on the West Coast, and to build on our existing strengths nationally.”

Peter Strotz, managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office added: “Glenn and Daron will add considerable firepower to our California Healthcare team, which has grown significantly in the last three years, particularly in Sacramento and L.A.”
