Linda counsels a wide range of organizations and financial institutions on health law, such as national and regional managed care organizations, financial institutions, IRBs, government agencies, hospitals and hospital systems, genetic and biotechnology companies, medical device companies, international scientific organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and research foundations.  Providing expertise in the application of Federal and state healthcare laws and regulations to her clients’ businesses comprise a focal point of Linda’s practice.  She works closely with them to ensure compliance with health care anti-fraud, state, national and international privacy laws, Medicare/Medicaid regulations, False Claims Act, human subject research, genetic testing, Affordable Care Act initiatives and other regulatory matters.  The depth of her expertise in transactional matters includes advice regarding mergers and acquisitions, organizing start-up ventures, joint ventures, and negotiating complex agreements among various industry stakeholders. 

In the life sciences context, Linda advises clients on cutting-edge legal issues with respect to translational and biomedical research and technology, genomics and gene studies, genetic privacy, regenerative medicine, clinical trials, and tissue banking.  Her work has also included counseling on privacy and security issues, strategizing and implementing clinical research policies and programs, and drafting and negotiating complex and time-sensitive grant and clinical research agreements.

Linda advises clients on compliance with federal, state and international privacy and security laws concerning the transfer of identifiable health information, the provision of health care and medical research.  This includes analyzing their privacy and security practices under state laws, federal laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ("HIPAA") and under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (“HITECH”)., and international laws such as the recently enacted General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation.

Linda serves as Chair of the Health Law and Policy Coordinating Committee of the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association.  She has also been appointed to the Founding Board of the newest division of the NBTA (National Board of Trial Advocacy), called the National Board of Health Lawyers.
