Upon reaching a milestone anniversary, it is interesting to step back and take stock. At the beginning, in the early 1970s, Epstein Becker Green was focused on what was next for health care law before few, if any, saw it as a separate discipline. We complemented that focus on health care by adding a focus on labor and employment law, also somewhat new at the time, which created beneficial synergies as health care became an ever-growing piece of our gross domestic spending and every business, including those in the health care industry, had to effectively manage its workforce from an employment law, labor law, and employee benefits standpoint.

As Epstein Becker grew into a super boutique in health care and workforce management, we added a robust litigation and transactional capacity to better serve our clients. More recently, we further expanded the depth we offered in our super boutique practices by creating EBG Advisors to provide holistic professional service solutions (consulting, legal, and other expertise) all under one roof to the health care industry. We also aligned with Deloitte Legal to provide workforce management services globally. And, fittingly, Epstein Becker registered a trademark referencing our thought leadership. Thought leadership that reflects our past, describes our present, and presages our future as we support our clients in meeting their ever-changing business and legal challenges.
