Mark Ison Quoted in U.S. News & World Report
Health care attorney, Mark Ison was recently quoted in U.S. News & World Report article titled, “What Health Care Law Is and How to Choose a School.”
Health care law is a broad specialty because it encompasses all of the numerous types of legal disputes that come up in the health sector, experts say.
“If someone is generally a litigator, but handles a good number of health care fraud and abuse cases, or that person generally handles mergers and acquisitions, but for hospitals, that person might very well consider himself a health care lawyer,” Mark Ison, an adjunct instructor in health law at Belmont University’s College of Law in Tennessee, wrote in an email.
“Because the delivery of health care in the U.S. is so highly regulated, I tell my students that a great health care lawyer is really just a great lawyer who plies his or her trade in or for the health care industry,” explained Ison, a practicing attorney within the health care group of the Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison law firm in Tennessee.
