With founding offices in Washington, DC and New York, Epstein Becker & Green has grown nationally and developed a reputation for its notable health care and labor and employment law practices.
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, EBG 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 & 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
EBG 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, and health care and life sciences practices.
