Nelson Hardiman, LLP, is pleased to welcome Emily P. Davis, a rising star who joins the firm from a boutique Southern California practice where she focused on managed care and reimbursement disputes, as well as healthcare business issues. Emily brings regulatory depth, healthcare industry expertise, and healthcare litigation experience to Nelson Hardiman.

“Emily brings a solid foundation in the business of healthcare with a demonstrated ability to manage healthcare litigation and guide clients through the complex regulatory issues relating to reimbursement,” said partner Mark Hardiman. Among other things, Emily has represented major California health plans and other third-party payers in arbitrations and litigation involving hospital and other provider claims for payment. In addition to her work on payer-provider issues, Emily will work across the firm’s litigation practice, as well as providing support on regulatory compliance and transactional matters, including issues related to healthcare reimbursement and operations.

“Emily is a great addition to Nelson Hardiman’s team,” said Managing Partner Harry Nelson. “Our firm’s market leadership in our niche depends on continuing to find smart attorneys with industry depth who are unafraid to tackle hard questions and have a passion for delivering superlative service for our client’s ever-growing needs.”

“I am honored and excited to be part of the premier team of healthcare attorneys in the State,” said Davis. “Nelson Hardiman is the ideal platform for me to serve clients and build my practice.”

At Nelson Hardiman, Emily’s purview will extend from reimbursement to federal and state healthcare fraud and False Claims Act matters, and a range of regulatory compliance issues. Emily’s comprehensive knowledge of Covered California and other large California health plans will benefit healthcare providers trying to navigate the complexities of the state’s consumer-driven healthcare industry as well as state and federal regulatory frameworks.
