Tom’s recent practice highlights include representing multiple hospital systems in unfair competition litigation involving interstate transfer patterns of critically ill cardiac and neurology patients. He has also represented hospital systems, physician provider groups, and individual providers in multimillion-dollar reimbursement disputes with insurers.
