Health Care industry experience

He also was a senior member of the trial team that defended a challenge by the Federal Trade Commission to enjoin the merger of two suburban Chicago hospitals. That case, In the matter of Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Corp., presented many novel issues. He played a critical role in United States v.
