In-House Counsel Survey Results

In February 2012, the ABA Health Law Section Litigation and Risk Management Interest Group developed a survey to send to all Health Law Section In-House Counsel members. The In-House Counsel Sub-Interest Group, which is currently affiliated with the Healthcare Facility Operations Interest Group, collaborated on the content of that survey. 

Over 50 in-house counsel, from a variety of healthcare sectors, responded to questions regarding key risk mitigation and litigation issues facing in-house counsel in today’s challenging environment. In addition, several participants provided candid feedback for outside counsel. The results are provided here, for your information.  

We would like to invite any Health Law Section member to join the In-House Sub-Interest Group. Membership in the Sub-Interest Group is free.  We welcome any ideas you may have as the Section works toward developing the In-House Counsel Sub-Interest Group.
