The breadth of experience delivered by the firm—to all players throughout every sector of the healthcare delivery system—sets the firm apart. EGB stays at the cutting edge of new healthcare and life sciences issues, such as mHealth and data privacy and security.

The firm continues to engage in the national discourse on healthcare and operate within the sectors’ elite network of business leaders and top government officials—positioning the firm’s attorneys to legitimately project the path of healthcare law. EBG provides healthcare and life sciences clients with transactional, regulatory, compliance and litigation counsel as well as strategic and advocacy services—from daily decisions to core 'bet the ranch' determinations. Additionally, the firm offers advice and counsel throughout all phases of agency approval, and submissions, coding, coverage, and reimbursement support.
