Foley & Lardner LLP announced today that Emily Weber has joined the firm’s Health Care Practice as a partner in its Denver office.
Weber brings over a decade of experience in the health care industry, both in private practice and as in-house counsel for major academic medical centers and teaching hospitals. She has extensive experience advising health systems, medical centers, schools of medicine, community hospitals, and physician groups on a wide range of matters, including complex health care and clinical research regulations and transactions, HIPAA and Affordable Care Act compliance, health care fraud and abuse, and data privacy issues. In addition, Weber has in-depth knowledge and experience counseling clients on joint ventures, affiliations, practice acquisitions, provider agreements, compliance programs, and governance documents.
Weber has advised some of the nation’s largest academic health systems on data and innovation matters and has successfully handled data security compliance and governance for personalized medical programs. Her experience includes setting up a sophisticated, multi-institutional enterprise data warehouse and complementary biobank for a precision medicine program.
Weber comes to Foley from Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, where she was a shareholder in the firm’s Denver office. Before entering private practice, she served as associate general counsel at the University of Colorado Health and, previously, as associate counsel at Temple University Health System Inc. and as associate counsel and compliance officer at Vail Valley Medical Center.
“Emily’s considerable industry knowledge and hands-on regulatory and compliance experience adds significant depth to our growing national health care practice,” said Judith Waltz, co-chair of Foley’s Health Care Practice Group. “With the addition of Emily, our team continues its client-driven growth in the areas where clients need us most, particularly as the regulatory landscape for the U.S. health care sector continues to shift.”
“We are pleased to welcome Emily to the firm,” said Geoffrey Bracken, managing partner of Foley’s Denver office. “She will be a remarkable asset to our clients and an important resource in enhancing our presence, both in the Colorado market and nationally, as we continue to grow our Denver office.”
