Lynn Gordon chairs the firm’s Health Care practice in Chicago. She concentrates on the transactional, regulatory and operational needs of hospitals, health systems and other provider entities, as well as life sciences companies. She counsels clients on mergers, affiliations, acquisitions and divestitures. She also advises clients on regulatory issues such as compliance with fraud and abuse laws, FDA regulations and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement rules.

My practice is focused on representing health care providers and life sciences companies on a broad range of strategic initiatives and complex compliance matters.


In addition to handling numerous mergers and acquisitions ranging from a small physician practice acquisition or sale of a home health agency, to a complete merger of a multi-state health system, I advise clients on a range of sophisticated provider networks, joint ventures and affiliations. These include hospital-physician joint ventures, joint ventures among specialty providers and joint ventures involving life sciences companies, hospitals and health systems, including joint operating company models.

Regulatory Compliance

I help clients navigate and comply with the full range of complex compliance issues facing the health care and life sciences industry. I counsel clients on Stark, antitrust, anti-kickback, FCA, IRC 501(c)(3), FDA, FCPA and other compliance matters. A significant focus of my practice involves representing providers and life sciences companies regarding anti-kickback Medicare/Medicaid internal and external audits, governmental investigations and corresponding self-disclosures and recoupment demands, including a more recent wave of medical device investigations involving physicians, hospitals and life sciences companies.
