McGuireWoods partner Jeffrey
C. Clark has been named an “Outstanding Healthcare Litigator” for 2007 by
Nightingale’s Healthcare News. Clark is one of only 12 lawyers nationally
who were selected for this honor.
The list of honorees is published in the January 2008 issue of
Nightingale’s, a national newsletter for executives and other professionals
serving the healthcare industry. Selection for inclusion in the list is made by
the Nightingale’s editorial staff based on information obtained from
former honorees and other sources in the legal community.
Nightingale’s noted that in 2007, Clark won a summary judgment on
behalf of a managed care provider in a multimillion dollar lawsuit, obtained a
reversal of an administrative decision to deny a national dialysis company
reimbursement for bad debts and obtained a circuit court’s approval of a grant
for a certificate of need for a new hospital despite a competitor’s challenge.
“Jeff is extremely dedicated to his clients and deserves this honor for the
high level of healthcare litigation he does,” says Scott Becker, co-chair of
McGuireWoods’ Health Care Department.
Clark concentrates his practice in various areas of complex commercial
litigation, with his primary emphasis in health care litigation. He has
represented health care and other clients across the country in matters
involving managed care issues, contract law, covenants not to compete, trade
secrets, injunctive relief, fraud and other business torts, unfair competition,
partnership disputes, professional liability, product liability and ERISA

has tried numerous cases to verdict in state and federal courts throughout the
