The American Bar Association’s (ABA) Health Law Section recognized Husch Blackwell with the overall top ranking in its 10th Annual Regional Law Firm Recognition List Top 10. In addition to its #1 national ranking, the firm placed first in the Midwest region and fourth in the South region. The award individually recognizes the top ten law firms with the largest number of health law lawyer members in the ABA Health Law Section as of August 31, 2022, both nationally and in the Northeast, Southeast and DC, South, Midwest, and West Regions.

“Our group has continued to grow and expand into new healthcare markets across the country throughout the past year,” said Curt Chase, the head of Husch Blackwell’s Healthcare, Life Sciences and Education business unit. “Our top ranking with the ABA Health Section reflects the size and depth of our team, as well as the high level of engagement and commitment we have to the industry.”

In addition to topping the ABA Health Section’s Top 10 List, Husch Blackwell’s healthcare team has received numerous accolades in 2022. Earlier this year, the firm placed third in the American Health Law Association’s Top Honors listing, which recognizes law firms “that consistently and enthusiastically encourage and sustain their members’ and employees’ affiliation with AHLA.” The firm also earned national rankings from Chambers USA and Legal 500 US in their healthcare law categories.

“Our firm has always valued the thought leadership and career development opportunities presented by the Health Law Section,” said Husch Blackwell partner Hal Katz, who served as Chair of the ABA Health Law Section from 2020 to 2021. “The Section supports lawyers in developing the skills, expertise, and relationships that they will rely upon on a daily basis in representing their clients throughout their careers, and I am pleased so many Husch Blackwell lawyers embrace the opportunities the Health Law Section offers.”

Katz was the third Husch Blackwell attorney to serve as the ABA Health Law Section Chair. Other former chairs include David Hilgers (Austin) and Andy Demetriou (Los Angeles).
