U.S. News & World Report has released its 2015 Best Law Firms report, naming Polsinelli the “Law Firm of the Year in Health Care.” The designation is based on Polsinelli’s overall performance in health care, incorporating both client feedback and peer review, and reflective of the firm’s growing talent pool, complete range of healthcare legal services, and geographic footprint across 19 cities.

“We are extremely grateful to our clients. We are privileged to serve our clients in this complex and dynamic industry, and we have been fortunate to continuously attract lawyers from top law firms across the country who are passionate about building client relationships and providing outstanding client service. This recognition validates our commitment to the health care industry and importance of continuing to support our strong national practice,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh. “It’s an exciting time for our firm.”

Polsinelli represents a wide variety of health care clients including hospital and health systems, clinical research organizations, physician groups, home health agencies, hospice providers and senior and long-term care facilities. In 2014, Polsinelli was also ranked as the second largest Health Care Practice by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) and as the third largest Health Care Practice by Modern Healthcare.

“The industry is seeing tremendous change, and our clients’ roles are becoming increasingly complex,” said Health Care Practice Chair Matthew Murer from his Chicago office. “Polsinelli has responded by building a strong and diverse team of more than 190 health care attorneys and professionals across the country who understand their clients’ businesses and immerse themselves in this evolving and challenging industry.” Murer continued, “We greatly appreciate our clients who have made this a reality, and who have formed relationships with our growing, talented team of health care attorneys.”
