Michael K. Fee to Lead Verrill’s Nationally-Recognized Health Care and Life Sciences Practice Amidst Recent Changes

August 31, 2020 Press Releases

(August 31, 2020) – Verrill is pleased to announce Michael K. Fee as the new leader of Verrill’s nationally-recognized Health Care & Life Sciences Group. The Group has a long history of representing a broad range of providers, insurers, and other participants in the health care field. Fee joined the Group during the past year, bringing to it preeminent skills and experience as a white collar defense litigator and health care fraud and abuse advisor.

At the same time, Verrill is announcing the dissolution of a portion of its practice group focused on academic and clinical research matters. “We are naturally sorry to see colleagues in this niche field depart,” Fee commented. “But it will not impact Verrill’s longstanding and vibrant health care practice. We will continue to serve clients of all kinds who operate in the complex and highly regulated health care field.”

Verrill provides a full spectrum of legal services to organizations and individual professionals in health care. Through multidisciplinary collaboration, Verrill assists with critical matters like strategic affiliations and transactions, privacy and security, reimbursement, regulatory compliance, and the defense of health care industry players in government enforcement proceedings and litigation. The health care practice has experienced a great deal of growth over recent years, including the expansion of the health care and life sciences defense practice that Fee also leads.

“I am excited to lead such a strong array of attorneys with decades of experience and stature in the health care field. As our clients look to us now more than ever amidst the current pandemic, we will continue to serve the ever-evolving needs of our clients throughout New England and beyond, providing them with the highest level of client service and value they know and expect,” added Fee.

Verrill’s Health Care and Life Sciences Group and its Health Care Industry Group, composed of 20 Partners and Counsel, supported by energetic and talented associates, remain focused on using their unmatched knowledge and skill to deliver the highest level of client service to the firm’s health care industry clients from three of Verrill’s offices in New England.
