LOS ANGELES, JULY 9, 2012 – Sarah Fallows (formerly Sarah Nelson), a health care attorney with five years’ experience in regulatory compliance, acquisitions, and other transactions, has joined Davis Wright Tremaine LLP as an associate in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

The addition of Fallows to the firm’s 75 other health care attorneys is part of a national expansion of Davis Wright’s health care practice group. Last year the firm added a top HIPAA expert to its Washington, D.C., health care group.

"We’re delighted to have Sarah on our team," said Mary Haas, Los Angeles partner-in-charge. "Her background will be an asset in providing our well-established health care practice with additional strength."

Fallows most recently served as in-house legal director for IPC, a hospitalist group that manages health-care delivery to patients in over 900 medical facilities across the country. Her work at IPC focused on managing the acquisition of physician groups.

Before IPC, Fallows was an associate at McDermott Will & Emery LLP in Los Angeles, where she worked on health care-related transactions, regulatory compliance involving HIPAA, Stark and anti-kickback laws, and litigation.

Fallows earned her J.D. from Harvard Law School and a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
