His clients include hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, dental support organizations, physician groups, private equity sponsors and dialysis centers.

Before entering private practice, Tim worked in healthcare policy for five years in Washington DC. Focused on Medicare payment policy, Tim served both as chief regulatory staffer and lobbyist for the National Rural Health Association. Tim then joined the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services within the Department of Health and Human Services. In this latter role, he prepared congressional testimony and aided the Agency’s efforts to support the Affordable Care Act’s enactment.

In addition, he received two writing awards—a national Burton Award for Distinguished Legal Writing and the Leigh B. Bienen Prize. Tim also served as extern to the Honorable Marvin E. Aspen, U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of Illinois, and contributed to an effort to rewrite the evidence code of Tanzania.
