David Edquist brings a risk management approach to his work with the firm’s health care and business clients that is based on over thirty years of experience in litigating commercial disputes in state and federal courts and before various administrative tribunals.

David advises our health care clients on joint ventures, affiliations, and acquisition agreements; issues facing not-for-profit institutions, including corporate governance and tax exemption; environmental compliance; and physician contracting and patient referral issues, including fraud investigations. In this context, his risk management perspective sharpens the focus on such key compliance areas as Stark, anti-kickback, and other fraud and abuse issues.

He is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
