Attorney Tanya Cramer counsels clients on antitrust issues and represents them in litigation, government investigations, and merger reviews by antitrust agencies. Tanya’s background in economics and her understanding of health care industries, together with her creative approach to problem solving, enable her to craft effective solutions for clients and advocate persuasively on their behalf.

Tanya works with hospital systems and other clients to navigate the merger review process before the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the U.S. Department of Justice, and state antitrust agencies. She also counsels clients to ensure that they are in compliance with the antitrust laws and with other legal requirements facing the health care industry. Additionally, Tanya represents clients facing litigation and government investigations in both antitrust and non-antitrust cases.
