The firm not only cares deeply about its team, but about having a transformative, positive impact on improving healthcare locally, regionally, and nationally.

There’s little turnover so most of the attorneys and staff have known each other for a long time and enjoy spending time together. There are monthly all firm meetings and monthly all attorney meetings which, in addition to ensuring the firm is running smoothly, help create a sense of camaraderie. Name partner Mark Hardiman has fostered a social culture that makes for a diverse but tight-knit group that genuinely like working together.
