Client Comments

"Christopher Jedrey is an excellent subject matter expert with most health law issues. He is amongst the best health care attorneys I have worked with and I strongly recommend him to health care organizations and leaders."

-Kenneth Paulus
Allina Health System

"We have had an excellent experience with Chris Jedrey negotiating a tedious merger into a hospital system. His breadth of knowledge, facile grasp of evolving complexities with clear communication, and easy availability were outstanding."

-Glen Henry
Cardiology Associates of New Haven LLC

"Chris Jedrey is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and constructive in his advice. He knows the industry very well and is an excellent strategic partner."

"Chris Jedrey is fabulous. He is the number one health care lawyer in Boston. We also think Charlie Buck is great."

"I work closely with Chris Jedrey on many complex health care matters. Chris's most important strength is his ability to think very creatively to meet the business needs of his clients. Given the complex regulatory environment health care organizations, Chris is often able to help us develop a model that meets both the regulatory requirements as well as the business needs, which is often a very difficult task. He is very well versed in understanding the health care environment in Massachusetts, which is often critical to our decision making. We also frequently work with Charlie Buck on similar issues. Charlie has an in-depth understanding of the health care regulations and is able to provide sound, immediate advice on a range of health care issues. We have recently been working closely with Bob Louthian (based in DC) on a number of 990, 501(c)(3) governance issues, and in particular, physician and executive compensation issues. In addition, Chris will seek advice from other subject matter experts within MWE as needed, which is a great service. All of the individuals with whom I work at MWE are very accessible and pleasant to work with. I cannot overstate how much I personally, and the organization, value the sage and sound advice from Chris Jedrey and all the others at MWE. I would call Chris my "go-to" guy."

"I have worked with Chris on the most complicated and difficult physician alignment and integration projects imaginable over the past 25 years. His creativity, experience, and depth of knowledge in the field are without equal. In addition, his ability to educate health care professionals as well as the senior management teams and Boards of Trustees at health care organizations is incredibly valuable. Chris's differentiating characteristic is his ability to focus on creating solutions that result in working through the issues that accomplish the client's goals within the regulatory guidelines and that are lasting and successful over the long-term for all parties."
