Gerry Hinkley, Partner

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP Pillsbury is a full-service law firm with market-leading strengths in the healthcare, energy, financial services, real estate and technology sectors. With offices in the world’s major financial and technology centers, we counsel clients on all aspects of global transactions and litigation. Our multidisciplinary teams allow us to anticipate trends and offer a 360-degree perspective on complex business and legal issues—helping clients take greater advantage of opportunities and better mitigate risk.

Healthcare Practice

Pillsbury’s Healthcare team keeps clients abreast of legislative, regulatory, enforcement, and market developments to provide up-to-the-minute advice as well as long-term strategic counsel. We are also thoroughly familiar with the fundamental business concepts that affect all aspects of health care organizations – from leasing and employment to technology and environmental issues – which informs our advice to clients on how to take advantage of the right opportunities to improve the quality of care while keeping costs down.

Our attorneys advise health care entities (including managed care companies, hospitals, medical groups, bio-technology companies, insurance companies, pharmacy benefit managers, vision centers, ambulatory centers and other facilities) on legal issues specific to the health care industry. We also provide counsel on all aspects of health law ranging from fraud and abuse and corporate practice of medicine to government regulation. We offer guidance to insurance carriers and employers on health benefit plans, and we work closely with our Employment & Labor and ERISA groups on employer’s health plan managed care issues. In addition, our attorneys routinely advise on the laws relating to tax-exempt institutions. We also advise clients on management and expenditure of endowment and restricted funds, and government investigations into such funds. Our attorneys provide clients with health care litigation representation in administrative proceedings and in federal, state and bankruptcy courts. We also provide experienced counsel in alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation and arbitration.

What Sets Us Apart – Client Service

From end-of-matter satisfaction debriefs to alternative fee arrangements, client service is the heart of our approach to law. This commitment extends to our multidisciplinary teams that bring together the firm’s top cross-practice and cross-industry talent to prepare clients for emerging issues like climate change and sustainability, disaster planning and liability management, and privacy and data protection. Aiming to create a true partnership with each client, we also provide complimentary services ranging from on-site incubators for startups, to networking events that bring together clients that share strategic interests, to a program that offers “second opinions” free of charge.
