Husch Blackwell adds 12 attorneys to Madison practice

By: Michaela Paukner, [email protected]//January 13, 2020

Twelve attorneys have joined Husch Blackwell’s health care, life sciences and education-industry team, the firm announced Monday. The attorneys come from Godfrey & Kahn and Reinhart.

The attorneys will now work out of Husch Blackwell’s offices in Madison. The partners Tom Shorter, Jed Roher and John Anderson, formerly of Godfrey & Kahn, will lead a team that includes Tom O’Day, Peggy Barlett, Kelsey Anderson, Bill Foley and Matthew Ludden, also former Godfrey & Kahn attorneys. They have experience with mergers, acquisitions, affiliation models, labor and employment law, educational institutions and business cooperatives.

Godfrey & Kahn released a statement about the eight attorneys’ departure. The firm said the attorneys had served large health-system clients, and despite their departure, “we continue to serve clients in the health care industry.”

Meg Pekarske and Bryan Nowicki, formerly of Reinhart, joined Husch Blackwell as partners. They’ll lead a team that includes the former Reinhart attorneys Andrew Brenton and Erin Burns. They’ve represented hospices in various matters around the country, including regulatory compliance, the development of palliative-care programs, inpatient-unit structures, government investigations, enforcement actions and contracting issues.

Husch Blackwell has offices in 18 cities throughout the U.S., including in Madison and Milwaukee.
