Epstein Becker Green demonstrated its versatility of health care offerings in 2017 by counseling companies in transactions, notching antitrust victories and defending against False Claims Act allegations, earning the firm a place on Law360’s list of Health Groups of the Year.

Since its founding as a health care firm in 1973, Epstein Becker has worked to solidify and grow its reputation within the industry. More than 125 of the firm’s roughly 250 attorneys are focused exclusively on health care, allowing it to provide expertise in issues related to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, fraud and abuse, transactions, tax, government litigation and investigations, said George Breen, head of the firm’s health care and life sciences practice.

“The notion of us focusing on our health care practice has given us experiences across the health care space,” Breen told Law360. “It’s something we strive to have clients take advantage of given that length of experience.” …

“To be able to handle virtually any matter [clients] face in the health care space really sets us apart,” he noted.

The firm’s registered trademark is “Thought Leaders in Health Law.” Epstein Becker says it demonstrates this commitment to thought leadership through initiatives such as a thought leaders in health law video series. Video topics include drug pricing, issues facing the dietary supplement industry, fraud and abuse, and health care fraud enforcement.
