Foley announced today that the firm has been selected to receive the 2011 Massachusetts Healthcare Law Firm of the Year Award by Global Law Experts (GLE). This inaugural honor recognizes one law firm in each state that provides exceptional legal services in the health care practice area.
Foley was selected for this recognition by a GLE awards panel that evaluated more than 18,000 U.S. and international firm recommendations from business directors, in-house counsel, independent law firms, high-net-worth individuals, bar associations, visitors to the GLE website and LinkedIn users. These references were combined with GLE’s own independent research to create a shortlist of firms for each state and key practice area. The shortlisted firms were judged on client testimonials, key cases from the past 12 months, legal rankings, overall reputation, publication contribution, speaking engagements and the performance and standing of the team’s individual attorneys.
With a firsthand understanding of health care’s business and legal challenges, Foley health care attorneys advise industry and government leaders in the development of major health care policies and has helped shape the development of some of the nation’s largest health care systems. The firm’s Health Care Industry Team assists a broad range of clients, including national provider associations, national health care systems, and regional and local providers with creative legal thinking and practical industry experience.
