Melania Jankowski


“The documents and structures involved in complex health care transactions must thoroughly protect a client’s interests and minimize compliance concerns. But they also need to be practical, workable, and make sense to the parties involved in order to facilitate the client’s goals.”

Melania Jankowski focuses her practice on addressing the myriad licensure, regulatory, scope of practice, and other compliance issues implicated in health care transactions and business arrangements. Whether assisting with a complex integration for a large hospital system or facilitating a telehealth start-up’s efforts to get its innovations to market, Melania brings an understanding of the legal landscape and a thoughtful, common-sense approach to her work.

Regularly called upon to address the compliance aspects of a transaction, Melania conducts the research and due diligence needed to understand any relevant regulatory issues or concerns. Her experience includes work on scope of practice and licensure issues at the state level and she frequently contributes to the consummation of practice and service agreements, as well as various corporate structuring agreements, covering multiple jurisdictions.

To assist clients in improving health care delivery, Melania also provides counsel and guidance for start-ups and companies in the digital health space so they can grow and scale while avoiding compliance problems that could derail their success. She recognizes every client has their own perspectives, concerns, and way of doing business and tailors her approach so that her representation best serves their needs.

Prior to joining Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, Melania worked as an associate for a national law firm, focusing primarily on regulatory issues facing health care providers. She also served as a law clerk for the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), where she provided research and analysis to the HRSA Licensure Portability Program grant implementation team. During her time at FSMB, Melania also gained invaluable experience tracking medical licensure and telehealth waivers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Melania received her J.D. from Boston College Law School in 2021, where she advised clients in the early stages of business formation through the Project Entrepreneur Clinic. During law school, she served as the co-chair of the Academic Standards Committee, a member of the Appointments and Promotions Committee, the treasurer of the National Lawyers Guild, and an Eagle-to-Eagle mentor. Melania also assisted the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office as a claims intake volunteer for victims of the opioid crisis.
