February 2, 2021 Press Releases

(February 2, 2021) – Verrill is pleased to welcome health care attorney Alicia Siani to the firm’s Boston, Massachusetts office. Siani represents clients in a wide range of regulatory issues, including HIPAA privacy matters, the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute, licensing and certification, and fraud and abuse issues and investigations.

Michael Fee, Chair of Verrill’s Health Care and Life Sciences Practice said “We are very excited to add Alicia to our nationally-recognized health care and life sciences practice. Alicia brings with her a stellar academic record and a wealth of experience, particularly in health care policy and advocacy. A former participant in Verrill’s summer associate program, Alicia instantly became a substantial contributor to our work, advising health care and life sciences clients on issues of great importance, including HIPAA privacy, reimbursement and medical device regulation.”

Prior to joining Verrill, Siani served as Manager of the Health Reform Initiative at a Chicago-based maternal and child health nonprofit. In that role, she co-chaired the Governor’s Council for Early Learning SIAC Health subcommittee and conceptualized policies to improve access to comprehensive coverage under Illinois’ Medicaid Managed Care program. She also previously served as the health and education legislative assistant for U.S. Representative Rush D. Holt (NJ-12). During law school, she interned with the Health Law Advocates and Community Catalyst, as well as represented clients through Boston University’s Compassionate Release Practicum and Civil Litigation Clinic.

Siani received her bachelor’s degree from Davidson College, cum laude, and earned her law degree from the Boston University School of Law with a concentration in Health Law, magna cum laude.
