World-straddling law firm DLA Piper /a> 4,200 lawyers strong, has just added one more strong lawyer, Karen Nelson, who most recently worked as Deputy Inspector General and Chief Counsel for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s (HHSC) Office of Inspector General. Medicare guru, she brings her years of work with Medicaid and Medicare laws and regulations to aid and advice the clients of DLA Piper, in their Austin office.

“Karen is an informed and experienced strategist, having been a key member of what many consider to be the most robust and effective Medicaid regulatory and enforcement agency in the country,” said Frank Sheeder, chair of DLA Piper’s Health Care Enforcement and Compliance practice. “As Medicaid issues take center stage as a product of health care reform, we are now even better positioned to offer our health care clients across the country a strong range of prevention, compliance and advocacy services.”
