We are thrilled that they have decided to build on their already successful professional careers with EBG.”

“It was important to me that this group remain together to bring a full team of health care attorneys as well as litigators and labor and employment attorneys that service the health care industry and beyond,” said Ms. Nelson Carney. “The response from our clients so far has been very positive and we look forward to servicing them even better from EBG’s national platform.”
