Does Healthcare Biglaw exist

Postby redsox550 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 2:51 pm

Assuming long term goal is Healthcare law but I need the $$$ so I will be trying to get Biglaw first. Are there any Biglaw places that would help me lateral or move into healthcare law after a few years in biglaw. What biglaw firm/job/specialty will give me the most experience.

Thanks

Please define "healthcare" and what you mean by "Healthcare law" as a long term goal.

In BigLaw, healthcare involves at least three general broad practice areas: (1) regulatory; (2) litigation (defense and/or plaintiff side); and (3) transactional.

What is it you want to do?

Another way of slicing up "Healthcare Law" is do you want to represent providers, payers, or patients? Guessing one of the two former.

Healthcare biglaw exists at the firms listed above. Was at Sidley NY this past summer and did some healthcare work there. People were super nice. Healthcare is small in NYC, but has a pretty sizable group that the firm is hoping to grow in DC. Just look at Vault and Chambers, talk to your career services people, and ask around for more info. At Sidley, Healthcare was separate from but closely related to other practice areas like FDA Regulatory and Patent Litigation.

In terms of what the Healthcare work consisted of, it was mostly drug reimbursement work, which boils down to trying to convince the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid to reimburse prescriptions of your client's (a pharmaceutical company) drug.
