As healthcare regulations mount, McBrayer increases its resources for providers with the addition of Bill George in the firm’s Lexington office.
George began his legal career as a prosecutor at the Fayette County Attorney’s Office in 2007. After working in medical malpractice, George joined Frost Brown Todd and for the next six years helped defend long term care providers, but also provided critical assistance to national and international insurance carriers. In this role, George supported clients’ insurance regulatory and compliance operations, market conduct examinations, insurance product development and insolvency proceedings while coordinating and conducting regulatory and administrative hearings across the United States.
“We’re thrilled to have Bill as a member of our team. His experience working with both healthcare providers and insurance companies gives him a unique perspective that will allow us to deliver critical advice to our clients,” said McBrayer Member and Chair of the healthcare group, Lisa Hinkle.
George has also been a volunteer firefighter for nearly twenty years, so he identifies with those on the front lines. Notes George, “Healthcare providers never get the congratulations and thanks they deserve, instead they get the 2 a.m. phone calls when there is no one else to help. That is my responsibility, to be the person healthcare providers can call when something important occurs. We would rather be part of the solution rather than the litigation at any time of day.”
George complements recent additions from the Fulkerson team who specialize in professional malpractice defense with a particular focus on medical malpractice. These recent additions demonstrate McBrayer’s commitment to the growing healthcare area.
