Law360 Names King & Spalding a Healthcare Practice Group of the Year for the Second Consecutive Year

NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2019 — Law360 has recognized King & Spalding’s Healthcare practice as a 2018 Practice Group of the Year for its successes guiding clients through multiple significant litigation, transactional and regulatory healthcare matters throughout 2018.  This is the second year in a row the firm has earned this recognition.

In its profile of the practice, Law360 highlighted the group’s efforts in helping Prime Healthcare defeat a bid to dismiss a suit over alleged Medicare Advantage underpayments; assisting the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center on three different deals that ended up totaling in excess of $620 million; and helping Ochsner Health System create a public-private partnership with Louisiana State University.

Jim Boswell, Team Leader of King & Spalding’s national Healthcare practice, told Law360, “Our health care group involves people in multiple disciplines who work side by side, so we have regulatory transaction and litigation lawyers who work seamlessly in a team.”

Law360’s annual Practice Group of the Year honors are given to the law firms behind the “litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry” in the past year. The Practice Groups of the Year were selected from among 759 submissions from 84 law firms.

In addition to being named a Healthcare Practice Group of the Year, King & Spalding also won Firm of the Year honors for being among the firms with the most Practice Group of the Year recognitions. The firm was also recognized as a Practice Group of the Year for Automotive, Construction, Environmental, International Arbitration, Life Sciences and Product Liability.
