NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Norton Rose Fulbright today announced that Andrew B. Roth, a healthcare lawyer with more than 30 years of transactional and regulatory experience, has joined its New York office as a partner.
Roth comes to Norton Rose Fulbright from Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, PC. Known for his accreditation work, Roth counsels academic medical centers and teaching hospitals nationwide on standards required by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. Roth’s other clients include multihospital systems, individual hospitals, correctional healthcare providers, nursing homes, physician groups, managed care organizations and health maintenance organizations.
Linda Addison, US Managing Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright, said:
“Andy’s experience in the graduate medical education accreditation area will enhance our offerings to our academic medical center clients on a national level. In addition, his arrival will benefit our New York office, significantly expanding its local healthcare capabilities.”
An established health lawyer, Roth’s experience covers industry mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, regulatory counseling, HIPAA, fraud and abuse issues, corporate compliance and corporate governance.
Roth, who has been listed by Chambers USA in New York: Healthcare for the last eight years, said:
“Norton Rose Fulbright has a well-established national healthcare practice with a group of highly respected lawyers across the country. This is an ideal setting for me to expand my practice in the graduate medical education area, working with academic medical centers and healthcare systems.”
Jim Wiehl, US Head of Healthcare Transactional, Norton Rose Fulbright, commented:
“A cornerstone of Andy’s practice is working with medical schools, academic medical centers and teaching hospitals on the accreditation of their residency and fellowship programs. He advises institutions and programs on understanding and complying with the accreditation requirements, conducts evaluations and audits, and he works with programs that have received adverse accreditation decisions. His experience in this important area will be a significant benefit to our healthcare practice and academic medical center clients.”
Roth, a frequent writer and speaker on health law topics, received his JD from Hofstra University School of Law, where he was a member of the Hofstra Law Review, and his BA from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is admitted to practice in New York and the District of Columbia.
