A big player in health care and life sciences law has opened an office in Indianapolis.
New York-based Epstein Becker Green’s local office is at 9001 Wesleyan Road, in the College Park area.
The local practice includes Bradley Thompson, who founded the Indiana Medical Device Manufacturers Council in the 1990s. He was also the first executive director of the Indiana Health Industry Forum.
Also leading the Indianapolis outpost is Leah Kendall, a Butler University and Indiana University School of Law grad who has been practicing health care law in Indiana.
Among Indiana clients of the 11-office, 300-attorney Epstein Becker firm are Biomet, Hill-Rom and Roche Diagnostics.
Indiana is home to about 825 medical-device firms, drugmakers and research labs. More than 8,000 jobs have been added to the sector in Indiana over the last decade.
“We anticipated this trend and growth in the life sciences industry in Indiana years ago and believe that now is an appropriate time to formalize the firm’s presence in the market,” said Doug Hastings, the law firm’s board chairman.
