Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Robert Andrew Wild, founding partner and chairman of GW, represents an array of national and regional health care provider institutions, companies, practitioners and not-for-profit groups, as well as clients in other industries. His practice primarily focuses on complex transactions for health care providers, including regulatory, compliance, mergers and acquisitions, antitrust, reimbursement, professional conduct issues, patient issues, real estate, graduate medical education and more. He was formerly an adjunct professor of health law at Hofstra University Law School and Assistant Clinical Professor of Health Law at Stony Brook University.
Along with being included on the Best Lawyers list for 20 years, Robert Wild has also been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers and Chambers and Partners as America’s leading business lawyer in “Health Care” for the past several years. He is a frequent lecturer and author in the field of health care law and has addressed a broad variety of professional organizations and health care providers.
Appointed in 2009, he is currently Board Chair for United Way of Long Island and is a Director of the Nassau Interim Finance Authority (NIFA). He also serves on the Advisory Board of United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County and on the Board of St. John’s Law School Alumni Association.
Fredrick I. Miller, partner/director and chair of GW’s Health Care Practice Group, specializes in the representation of hospital and other health care providers, with emphasis on managed care, compliance, corporate governance, corporate and hospital/physician matters. He served as counsel to the New York State Health Planning Commission. He is also a former member of the Board of Directors of Healthcare Financial Management Association, Metropolitan NY Chapter, and a frequent lecturer.
Along with being included on the Best Lawyers list for four years, Fredrick Miller has also been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers and was featured in “Ones to Watch” in Long Island Business News and “Who’s Who” in Attorney of Nassau County.
