December 13, 2016 Press Releases

(December 13, 2016) – Verrill Dana is pleased to welcome Cecilie MacIntyre to the firm's growing Health Care Group as Counsel in its Portland, Maine office.

Prior to returning to private practice, MacIntyre served as an Assistant Chief Counsel at the California Department of Managed Health Care. In her role at the Department, she addressed an array of legal and policy issues, such as health insurer mergers and the regulation of Accountable Care Organizations and provider groups, as well as issues arising from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. She also helped implement and administer laws regarding managed care organizations. As a former Associate in the Litigation Department of Dorsey and Whitney's New York office, MacIntyre has also worked on a range of different issues, including intellectual property disputes, insurance defense cases, and white collar criminal matters.

MacIntyre is a graduate of the University of Chicago and received her law degree from Cornell Law School.

The addition of MacIntyre to the firm comes less than six months after fellow attorneys Katherine Chaurette and Sarah Trautz joined Verrill Dana's Health Care Group in its Boston, Massachusetts office. The growth of the Group is in response to increased legal demand in the Health Care industry, including the medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and bioscience fields.
