Susan Robfogel is an active member of the firm’s Health Care and Labor and Employment groups.

What do you focus on?

Currently, I focus my practice on counseling clients in the life sciences and health care industries on labor and employment as well as regulatory and transactional matters.

Labor Relations

I advise clients on their rights and obligations in labor relations disputes involving collective bargaining agreements and other matters under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Act including union organizing and unfair labor practice proceedings. I have represented some of the largest health care systems in the country in responding to union corporate campaigns and I represent organized employers confronting bankruptcy on the collective bargaining aspects of bankruptcy proceedings.


I counsel employers on federal, state and local employment laws including those related to discrimination, harassment and wage and hour rules. I am particularly interested in the work I am doing as independent counsel to boards of directors on these matters and in their relationships and contracts with their executives.


I counsel health care providers on their statutory obligations and represent them in proceedings before federal and state regulatory bodies, including fraud and abuse rules and certificate of need applications.


I represent health care and life sciences clients in mergers and acquisitions and in corporate reorganizations.
