“Ellen’s experience and comprehensive understanding of the government procurement process will be an exceptional asset to our health care clients that are considering doing business with federal, state, and local governments,” EBG chair Mark E. Lutes said in a statement. “We always try to add attorneys to our firm who can benefit from our national platform, industry strength, and deep bench, and we look forward to the many contributions that Ellen will make as part of our team.”

Bonner earned both her Bachelor of Arts and law degree from the University of Oklahoma.

“The ability to service my national client base at a firm with a national platform is what led me to EBG,” she said in a statement. “The opportunity to join forces with an exceptional team of attorneys with deep knowledge in all areas of health care law is exciting and will be mutually beneficial.”
