American Lawyer Media (ALM) recognized Husch Blackwell among its “Top Ten Law Firms Most Used in Healthcare,” according to an article appearing yesterday on Law.com and the website of Corporate Counsel magazine. The data behind the top-ten list was derived from ALM’s 2017 “Who Represents America’s Biggest Companies Survey” and is based on information collected from PACER for the 2016 calendar year.
Husch Blackwell was ranked fourth among all law firms for the volume of work handled on behalf of Fortune 1000 healthcare-industry companies.
Last year, Husch Blackwell was also named to the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) top ten law firms as measured by AHLA membership. Husch Blackwell is one of just two law firms to be ranked currently on both lists. Additionally, the firm ranks among the top ten law firms in the American Bar Association Health Law Section’s Annual Regional Law Firm Recognition List, placing fourth in both the Midwest and South regions.
“Taken together, these rankings demonstrate that our healthcare regulatory practice is a market leader, both in terms of size and activity,” said Curt Chase, the chair of Husch Blackwell’s Healthcare, Life Sciences & Education industry team. “Our industry-focused approach to the practice of law provides our client partners with the confidence that we can handle their most complex and sophisticated challenges and that we understand their business objectives.”
