They’ve Got Next: Five Fresh Faces to Know in Healthcare and Life Sciences

April 22, 2021, 9:31 AM

Welcome to our seventh installment of “They’ve Got Next,” our series highlighting the work of rising stars of the bar — young lawyers who are leading the way in variety of practice areas.

To date, we’ve looked at the work of young attorneys in labor & employment, intellectual property, bankruptcy, tax,environmental law and appellate. Today, we spotlight five young lawyers to know in the world of healthcare and life sciences: Diana Watral of Kirkland & Ellis; Anne Karl of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, Rob Roberts of Ropes & Gray; Nina Marsden of Hooper, Lundy & Bookman and Travis Lloyd of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings.

Though they may be young, these attorneys haven’t backed down from “bet the farm” client matters across their diverse healthcare and life sciences practices. One worked with North Carolina to restructure how its Medicaid program delivers more than $2 billion in hospital payments annually. Another scored a major win for a Bristol-Myers Squibb subsidiary in a row over the alleged theft of research on the effectiveness of a cancer-fighting drug where $600 million in potential damages and penalties was at stake. And when it came to steering the entire regulatory review process for one of the largest health systems in the country, another attorney in this group made sure the health system’s hospitals and outpatient centers in 13 states had all the necessary licenses and permits they needed to keep their doors open.
