Practice Areas

Maureen is recognized as a leading health care lawyer at both the state and national levels. She chairs the firm’s Health Care Practice Group and advises health care providers on complex regulatory, patient care, reimbursement, compliance, operational, and corporate matters. She was the firm’s first female Managing Partner and served as a member of the firm’s Executive Committee for many years.

She has been an effective advocate for clients because she understands both the law and the business challenges of health care. She helps hospitals, provider networks, long-term care providers, home health care agencies, hospices, physicians, and other providers and trade associations navigate the ever-changing regulatory, business, and competitive waters of the health care industry.

Maureen is particularly experienced in representing long-term care providers, including continuing care retirement communities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and senior housing developers. She is counsel to LeadingAge Connecticut (an association of not-for-profit organizations serving older adults) and advises the association on legislative, regulatory, and policy matters. She is also a longstanding member of LeadingAge’s national Legal Committee. She also co-authored The HIPAA Handbook: Implementing the Federal Privacy Rule in a Long-Term Care Setting.

Maureen also leads Wiggin and Dana’s Health Care Compliance Practice Group. She represents health care providers in state and federal investigations and audits on Medicare and Medicaid billing and civil False Claims Act issues, conducts compliance audits and internal investigations, and advises clients on reporting compliance issues to government authorities and in developing and evaluating corporate compliance programs.

She has received many honors and recognitions over the course of her career. Maureen is consistently listed in Band 1 by Chambers USA in the health care field and similarly by The Best Lawyers in America. Maureen received the Connecticut Law Tribune’s Lifetime Achievement Award. She also received the Women in Leadership Community Award from the Women and Families Center and was named a “Remarkable Woman in Business” by the Hartford Business Journal. The Connecticut Association of Not-for-Profit Providers for the Aging (now LeadingAge Connecticut) honored her with the “Rick Wallace Award of Merit.”

Beyond her client work, Maureen lectures regularly at the state and national levels on legal topics relating to health care. She is a director of the Association for Long Term Care Financial Managers and a member of the organization’s Governance and Program Committees. Maureen also serves as a member of the Connecticut Department of Social Services’ Continuing Care Advisory Committee. She is past president of the Connecticut Health Lawyers’ Association, a former director of the Connecticut Assisted Living Association, and a director emeritus of The Connecticut Business and Industry Association. Maureen has also been involved in community organizations. She is currently a director of Continuum, a non-profit organization that provides services and housing to adults with mental illnesses and developmental disabilities. She previously served as a director of the Ronald McDonald House of Connecticut and as President of Theatre 4, a professional theater company startup.
