Ms. Burrows focuses her practice on health care law, with an emphasis on medical device, drug, and pharmacy law. Her broad-based experience also includes HIPAA/HITECH compliance, health privacy and security laws, and public health law.

"We're excited to welcome Vanessa to the Chicago office and look forward to the many contributions we are sure she will make to the practice group and the firm."

From 2006-2012, Ms. Burrows was a Legislative Attorney for the Congressional Research Service in Washington, D.C., where she was a nonpartisan expert advising Members of Congress and their staff in the areas of health law, with an emphasis on FDA legal issues (food, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics, and tobacco), administrative law, and constitutional law.

Ms. Burrows brings her experience to bear in the continuing expansion of the firm's Health, Drug & Pharmacy practice team. The team applies an integrated approach to assist clients in addressing the multifaceted and complex issues that face a wide range of health care industry organizations, personnel, and ancillary health care service providers.
