Emily Brodkin


“I never assume what a client’s concerns are before providing guidance or recommending a course of action. Listening to them and getting to the heart of what they want to avoid or accomplish is an essential prerequisite to delivering sound advice.”

Emily Brodkin handles a diverse range of corporate, transactional, regulatory, and compliance matters for health care industry clients. Providing counsel focused on both preventing and solving problems, she has represented hospitals, health systems, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, and established and emerging digital health companies while at HLB and before joining the firm. 

Emily’s experience includes involvement in fraud and abuse matters, physician contracting, telehealth, and transactional due diligence. In all matters, Emily commits herself to delivering timely, actionable guidance based on a full understanding of her client’s priorities and goals. 

Health care policy has been a life-long interest for Emily, and she made health care the centerpiece of her academic pursuits – earning a bachelor’s degree in Community Health, a J.D., and an M.P.H. – before it became the focus of her legal career. During law school, Emily served as the co-president of the Boston College Health Law Society and participated in the Community Enterprise Clinic, where she helped a doula services company obtain 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
