Ira’s health law practice focuses on clinical risk issues and adverse incident management, including large-scale lookback reviews and patient notifications. Ira frequently serves as a trusted advisor to senior administrative and clinical leadership in hospitals and health care organizations, advising on issues management, board and internal stakeholder engagement, media relations, legal compliance, regulatory reporting, and patient and client relations.
