About Us

The Patton Boggs Health Care Practice is one of the preeminent health law and policy practices in the nation. As leaders in this complex area, we use our knowledge of federal, state and local health care issues to counsel and defend clients on legal and policy matters under congressional consideration, in federal administrative rulemaking processes and under investigation by federal or state officials.

A key component of our Health Care Practice includes helping our clients navigate the intricacies of Medicare and Medicaid. Our work on behalf of clients encompasses legislative and grassroots advocacy, high-level administrative outreach on regulatory issues, coalition-building and project management, compliance advice, responses to federal or state investigations, corporate transactions assistance and identifying federal funding opportunities.

OUR TEAM

Our institutional knowledge gained over years of involvement in matters ranging from “big picture” policy debates to discrete technical issues gives us an exceptional level of understanding – and our clients a distinctive level of insight. With more than 120 professionals in the firm directly involved in public policy, including more than 30 members exclusively devoted to the Health Care Practice, we combine the talents of former high-ranking federal officials, congressional committee staff and an array of private sector attorneys and policy experts. We have extensive experience in dealing with complex regulatory issues at both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Collectively, our team has decades of regulatory and legislative experience, providing comprehensive, substantive authority on these matters and access to policymakers at the highest levels of the federal government.

Many of our litigators have extensive backgrounds working on health care fraud issues at the Department of Justice. The breadth and creativity of our litigation practice, often employed in combination with our public policy efforts, provides excellent service for clients. Our attorneys have completed hundreds of health care deals, ranging from company formation to acquisition, corporate finance, merger and workout. Patton Boggs has both the technical depth and political expertise to address our clients’ full range of advocacy, legal and transactional issues.

DIVERSE CLIENTELE

We advise the full range of health care entities, large and small, public and private. We represent Fortune 500 corporations, major trade associations, and national, state and local governments and organizations, including insurers, employers, physicians and care providers, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, biotechnology companies, not-for-profit organizations and municipal interests before both Congress and the relevant federal agencies.

Our practice has a unique history of building and managing large coalitions in the health care sector. Our understanding of legislative and regulatory processes coupled with our ability to manage the coalition format has helped these large coalitions achieve impressive victories time and again.
