Another Indianapolis-based law firm is expanding into additional major markets. Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, which bills itself as the largest practice in the U.S. focusing exclusively on the health care industry, is opening offices in Dallas and Seattle. In addition to its main Indianapolis office, Hall Render has a presence in Denver, Detroit, Louisville, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. The firm's expansion follows an announcement by Indianapolis-based Ice Miller LLP that it is opening a New York City office.

In February, Hall Render opened its Denver and Philadelphia offices. The firm currently employs nearly 200 attorneys.

Managing Partner John Ryan says there are two main reasons for the expansion. One being "vertical and horizontal growth" of its clients. He says health care providers, such as hospitals, health systems, long-term care organizations and physician practices, are expanding their "traditional" geographic footprints to attract more patients as the industry continues to evolve. Ryan tells Inside INdiana Business he is witnessing a "fairly remarkable evolution" of national mergers and acquisitions that is also occurring within the legal sector, so it is important for Hall Render to remain "just as accessible" to current and new clients in additional markets.

Mac Stewart will lead the seven-attorney Dallas office and Stephen Rose will be managing partner of the Seattle location, which will include five lawyers.

The firm's areas of focus include health care reform, HIPAA, information security, business transactions and labor and employment. Hall Render says it has represented more than 1,500 health care entities with a client base that includes every state.

Hall Render Managing Partner John Ryan tells Inside INdiana Business the growth is not likely to stop there.

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
