DLA Piper boosts health law practice in Austin
DLA Piper has hired Karen Nelson fresh from a role as the Deputy Inspector General and Chief Counsel for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s (HHSC) Office of Inspector General.
Nelson joins the firm’s Austin office, bringing specialist expertise in Medicare law.
“Karen is an informed and experienced strategist, having been a key member of what many consider to be the most robust and effective Medicaid regulatory and enforcement agency in the country,” said Frank Sheeder, chair of DLA Piper’s Health Care Enforcement and Compliance practice. “As Medicaid issues take center stage as a product of health care reform, we are now even better positioned to offer our health care clients across the country a strong range of prevention, compliance and advocacy services.”
