Nora L. Liggett

For more than two decades, institutional healthcare providers have turned to Nora Liggett to bridge the gap between strategic objectives and regulatory requirements. Nora helps CEOs, CFOs, and development officers structure corporate and system transactions in compliance with federal and state healthcare regulations.

Executives at the facility level also rely on Nora for assistance with day-to-day operational issues. In either scenario, clients value Nora's calm and practical approach to developing strategies and structures that advance their organizations toward achieving critical goals. Nora has earned respect across the full provider spectrum – from hospitals and health systems, to ambulatory surgery centers, home health agencies, imaging centers, and physician groups.

Chambers USA and Best Lawyers recognize Nora for her experience with Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse issues, Stark law, HIPAA, EMTALA, licensing, and other aspects of healthcare regulatory law.
