Aaron Lachant, who holds the distinction of being the firm’s first “homegrown” partner, leads the firm’s Regulated Substances practice, working with healthcare organizations and government on a wide range of regulatory compliance and business issues, including DEA, FDA, Medicare, and state regulations. Among other leadership roles, Aaron has worked closely with local governments in developing regulatory compliance programs and drafting legislation related to marijuana, and has represented providers in litigation involving both federal and state constitutional issues.
Zach Rothenberg, Nelson Hardiman’s newest addition, will add leadership to the firm’s Litigation practice. As a partner in his former firm, litigation boutique Grodsky & Olecki LLP, Zach has represented healthcare industry clients and others in litigation of business disputes, including breach of contract, payment disputes, fraud, unfair competition, employment, and trade secret cases. “Zach is a phenomenal trial attorney,” commented partner John Mills. “We are thrilled to add another heavyweight to our litigation team.”
We are excited to share this news of our new leadership. We look forward to speaking with you about how our growth can benefit clients and friends of Nelson Hardiman.
