With founding offices in Washington, DC and New York, Epstein
Becker and Green has grown nationally and developed a reputation
for its notable health care and labor and employment law
The Great Triumvirate
In 1973, Steven Epstein and Jeffrey Becker co-founded a firm
with branches in New York and DC. Several years later, Ronald
Green joined the firm. The founders' experience has mirrored the
two main strengths of the firm -- health care and employment law.
Chambers has recognized Steven Epstein as a "pioneer" of
the health care legal industry. Jeffrey Becker is also a health
care specialist, representing hospitals and managed care
organizations in everything from M&A to governance issues. The
firm's third cofounder, Ronald Green, founded the firm's labor and
employment practice, and has represented media giants like Bill
O'Reilly, NBC and the McGraw Hill companies.
With practices in corporate and securities, construction law,
employee benefits, life sciences, immigration law and litigation,
Epstein Becker & Green has represented clients like the NBA,
Deutsche Bank, Pfizer, Aetna, Health Net and Continental Airlines.
Internationally, the firm has affiliations with lawyers in Japan,
Germany and France and is a founding member of the International
Lawyers Network, a confederation of law firms spread across six
continents. Despite recently closing its Miami office, Epstein
Becker and Green maintains strong practices in cities from Los
Angeles to Stamford, Connecticut.
Healing Healers and Defending Employers
With a co-founder hailed as a pioneer of the health care legal
field, it's no surprise the firm has earned a reputation of being a
trendsetter in the healthcare arena. The firm's attorneys counsel
health care entities from hospitals to academic medical
institutions, earning accolades in the process from entities like
Chambers and Modern Healthcare. The latter
publication, for example, hailed Washington, DC senior partner Lynn
Snyder as the "most powerful" attorney in the field, and the
New York Times has called Epstein "one of the largest
health care law firms."
In addition to its emphasis on health care law, many of Epstein
Becker and Green's attorneys practice exclusively in the firm's
labor and employment law department, which is best known for
management-side labor and employment work. Among others, employment
law attorneys take on whistle-blowing, management-labor relations
and class action defense cases.
Life on the Inside
Epstein Becker & Green attorneys know how to work their New
York and DC contacts. Firm partners have served as general counsels
of numerous major corporations and in key positions with the
departments of justice, labor and health and human services. Stuart
Gerson -- who served as acting Attorney General early on in the
Clinton administration -- works in the firm's litigation, health
care and life sciences practices.
