We understand the struggles our healthcare clients face. Working together, our attorneys have decades of combined experience representing healthcare providers and practitioners in a broad range of healthcare litigation. We help our clients fight their legal battles – and win – so that they can concentrate on delivering the very best in patient care.

The breadth of our experience enables us to provide exceptional service to clients engaged in all facets of healthcare delivery. For the past 15 years, we have represented two of the largest hospital systems in the United States and some of the nation’s largest nursing home providers. We also represent individual non-profit and for-profit community hospitals, specialty facilities, surgery centers, and individual doctors and dentists. We have a long history of successfully defending medical malpractice claims against hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, and other healthcare providers.

“Our healthcare opponents have hired some lawyer and obtained a preliminary injunction with little input from our attorneys.”

‘Some lawyer’ was a Jackson Walker lawyer.  After a subsequent temporary injunction was granted and 97 depositions were taken, the same CEO making this statement authorized the payment of $8 million to Jackson Walker’s client to settle the case.
