Co-chaired by Tom Stukes and Tom Waldrep, Womble Carlyle’s Healthcare Bankruptcy team operates at the intersection of high-stakes bankruptcy proceedings and highly regulated healthcare law.
Our team includes attorneys with experience guiding creditors, debtors, and other stakeholders through Chapter 11 proceedings as well as veteran healthcare regulatory and transactional lawyers who close complex deals.
