by Tony Flesor

Foley & Lardner announced today that Emily Weber has joined the firm’s health care practice as a partner in its Denver office.

Weber brings over a decade of experience in the health care industry, both in private practice and as in-house counsel for major academic medical centers and teaching hospitals.

Weber joined Foley from Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, where she was a shareholder in the firm’s Denver office. Before entering private practice, she served as associate general counsel at the University of Colorado Health and, previously, as associate counsel at Temple University Health System Inc. and as associate counsel and compliance officer at Vail Valley Medical Center.

“Emily’s considerable industry knowledge and hands-on regulatory and compliance experience adds significant depth to our growing national health care practice,” said Judith Waltz, co-chair of Foley’s health care practice group. “With the addition of Emily, our team continues its client-driven growth in the areas where clients need us most, particularly as the regulatory landscape for the U.S. health care sector continues to shift.”

“We are pleased to welcome Emily to the firm,” said Geoffrey Bracken, managing partner of Foley’s Denver office. “She will be a remarkable asset to our clients and an important resource in enhancing our presence, both in the Colorado market and nationally, as we continue to grow our Denver office.”
