LOS ANGELES – JANUARY 7, 2021 – Kathryn Edgerton, who advises addiction treatment and telemedicine providers, has joined Davis Wright Tremaine's Los Angeles office as counsel. She rejoins her colleagues Stacie Neroni, Hope Levy-Biehl, and Christine Johnson, who moved to DWT in early 2020. The four are part of a rising generation of California lawyers elevating the firm's highly regarded healthcare team.
"Katie's arrival is the latest step, but not the last, in our California expansion in healthcare," said Jason Farber, co-chair of the firm's healthcare practice. "Over the past two decades, we have built a strong position in the market with some of the leading lawyers in the state. We now have a foundation to continue that legacy for the long term, while expanding our services to include new types of providers facing distinct business and regulatory challenges."
The Healthcare practice, which has depth up and down the West Coast and in Washington, D.C., serves clients across the country, including hospitals and health systems, medical groups, labs, pharmacies, behavioral health providers, telemedicine providers, and investors in all those segments.
"DWT has an ideal platform for me to serve my clients and build my practice," said Edgerton. "The healthcare team works on an integrated basis across M&A, privacy and security, labor and employment, antitrust, real estate, technology, litigation, and payments, ensuring we can support any of our clients with any needs they may have. For me personally, the firm actively encourages younger lawyers, creating space and providing support as we build our practices. If you have energy and ambition, this is a great place to be."
Edgerton, an Executive Committee member of the Privacy and Security Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, was named to a list of "Ones to Watch" in Healthcare for 2021 by Best Lawyers. She received her law degree from Cornell University and her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California.
