Experienced advice for critical decisions

In addition, Nexsen Pruet provides counsel to hospitals and physicians relating to the sale of physician practices.

Our health care lawyers are frequent speakers at seminars on topics such as physician/hospital relationships, managed care contracting, formation of integrated delivery systems and physician hospital organizations, and other regulatory topics.

    As an attorney myself, when I needed assistance in a white collar matter, I was immediately referred to
    Ms. Riley by more than one attorney. Right to the point, Ms. Riley's knowledge of the law, ability to communicate, and abilities as an advocate are second to none. Ms. Riley, in my opinion, is one of the brightest and most effective attorneys I have ever met.

Diversity

Nexsen Pruet recognizes the importance of having lawyers that reflect the broad diversity within our client base, our jury system, our colleagues, and our community at large.  To that end, we are committed to recruiting minority candidates, reducing minority attrition, supporting minority organizations, and expanding and improving our diversity program.  We also recognize that the pursuit of a diverse workplace is, and should be, ongoing. 

As a means of promoting these interests, we created the Nexsen Pruet Diversity Scholarship Program. Prior to creating the scholarship, we completed a written plan that identified methods by which the firm could recruit, hire, and retain minority lawyers. The plan includes expanding our recruitment efforts to other law schools, increasing recruitment of lateral minority and female candidates, and continuing to develop and enhance our relationships with minority law organizations such as the Black Law Students Association.  Our goal is to identify qualified minority candidates who may be potential members of the firm.

Nexsen Pruet understands the need for and value of increased diversity, and we are strengthening and building upon our commitment to provide an inclusive environment within our firm.  As such, we will maintain a continuing focus on doing whatever we can to achieve the important and necessary goal of diversity.
