Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced that registration is open for a quarterly webinar series in partnership with Hooper, Lundy and Bookman, P.C. focusing on significant health regulatory, legislative, litigation, and transactional developments throughout the year, analyzing each issue and forecasting what may be in store.

Roth, managing partner of Hooper, Lundy and Bookman’s Washington, DC office, in addition to other experts from the firm and special guests.
“The healthcare industry is ever-changing, so it's difficult for attorneys and compliance professionals to keep ahead of the curve,” said Rooney. “Wolters Kluwer is proud to provide customers and colleagues with discussions on timely topics that will help them better advise their clients. These webinars will focus on high-impact issues affecting health law today.”
“It’s extremely important for attorneys and others working in health care to keep up-to-date on regulatory, litigation, transactional, and legislative changes as they happen, as well as continuously assess how they will affect future decisions,” said Roth. “We are delighted to partner with Wolters Kluwer to provide updates on significant developments throughout the course of 2019. The year ahead will bring more challenges for industry professionals to navigate, and this webinar series will help them meet those challenges head-on.”
