  • Overview

    Rebecca Thornhill assists healthcare clients in complying with state Certificate of Need (CON) and facility licensure requirements. In particular, Rebecca helps clients obtain CONs by assisting with CON applications, defending against opposition and providing representation throughout the CON review process and any subsequent appeals. Rebecca also assists clients in opposing efforts of competing healthcare facilities to obtain CONs that would negatively impact her clients' operations. She routinely provides direction and advice to in-house counsel on a wide range of litigation, corporate transactional and regulatory matters.

    Rebecca is able to leverage her skills as a litigator in her healthcare practice. She has represented healthcare clients at multiple administrative trials and other proceedings during which she has given opening statements, offered legal arguments and conducted direct and cross examinations.
