Laterals bolster health care and FDA practice

Greenberg Traurig added shareholder Michi Tsuda and of counsel Mimi Hu Brouillette to the health care and FDA practice in its Denver office. They join the firm from Squire Patton Boggs.

“Michi and Mimi’s depth of experience in the health care sector make them outstanding additions for our clients,” Denver managing shareholders David Palmer and Michael McGinnis said in a joint statement. “We are proud to welcome them to Greenberg Traurig and to continue to grow our Denver office.”

Brouillette focuses her practice on health care reimbursement, regulatory and transactional matters. She advises clients in Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement compliance and represents providers in appeals before the Provider Reimbursement Review Board, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and in federal courts as well as in negotiations with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

Brouillette also handles health care regulatory and transactional matters, including mergers, acquisitions and financings; state regulatory issues including licensing, change of ownership, and CoN/DoN; survey/certification appeals; fraud & abuse/Stark law analyses; and general corporate and business planning in health care.
