July 2, 2010

Hodgson Russ’s Health Law Practice Group, Ellen V. Weissman, and Rick W. Kennedy are recognized in the 2010 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, an annual referral guide that ranks law firms and attorneys based on in-depth research and interviews with clients, attorneys, and corporate counsel.

In ranking Hodgson Russ among the top 14 law firms for Health Care Law in New York State, Chambers USA notes:

This firm, headquartered in Buffalo, is deeply entrenched in the western New York health care market. However, with offices in Albany and New York City, its presence is felt throughout the state. The team advises clients on both transactional and regulatory matters. In particular it excels in Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement matters and proceedings. Its client base largely consists of providers including hospitals, nursing homes and hospices; however, its lawyers also advise a substantial number of medical device and drug manufacturers.

The guide names Ms. Weissman, lead partner in the firm’s Health Law Practice Group, a “Key Individual” and quotes a client interviewed for the book in commending her practice:

"Smart and experienced, with great judgment," Ellen Weissman "always keeps on top of things." She has years of reimbursement experience under her belt and is one of the leading names in this area. She also counsels clients on other regulatory and compliance matters.

Mr. Kennedy, leader of Hodgson Russ’s Environment & Energy Practice Group, is recognized as a “Notable Practitioner” in the Environment: New York section, which states:

Buffalo-based Rick Kennedy of Hodgson Russ LLP assists with enforcement actions, Superfunds and RCRA cases, and also advises on compliance issues. Interviewees are impressed by his thorough and attentive approach.
