Healthcare Law

Postby calbearsboy » Sun Jun 27, 2010 5:05 am

My ultimate goal is to be a General Counsel of a healthcare system. Having looked into the job requirements, it seems that a minimum of 5-7 years of healthcare law experience is required. I'm assuming that corporate law wouldn't suffice in this situation? Also, what are some of the most prestigious healthcare law firms? It seems like healthcare law is so broad and that most top firms don't have a practice in this area..

McDermott is good in this space. You'd probably need a lot more than 5-7 years to be the GC in any really large system.

Thanks for the input. Are there any other firms that are particularly good in this space?
