NEW YORK, Jan. 29, 2020 — Law360 has recognized King & Spalding’s Healthcare practice as a 2019 Practice Group of the Year for “deftly handling precedent-setting” litigation, transactional and regulatory healthcare matters throughout 2019. This is the third 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 dismiss a suit over allegations of false claims submitted; securing a “big win” for the American Clinical Laboratory Association in a suit challenging the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' implementation of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act; and helping the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center enter into a long-term master affiliation agreement and master services agreement with the Children's Health System of Texas.
Jim Boswell, Team Leader of King & Spalding’s national Healthcare practice, told Law360, “the practice is unique in its interdisciplinary nature, as it combines health care regulatory, litigation and transactional work into one 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 776 submissions from 85 law firms.
In addition to being named a Healthcare Practice Group of the Year, the firm was also recognized as a Practice Group of the Year for Life Sciences.
