LOS ANGELES, March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — King & Spalding announced today that healthcare transactional lawyer Torrey McClary has joined the firm as a partner in its Los Angeles office.
McClary, a former partner at Hogan Lovells, specializes in representing health systems, academic medical centers, biotech companies and technology firms in a range of corporate and transactional matters. She has advised clients on prominent and highly complex health system transactions in recent years, using a variety of transactions models, including joint operating agreements, asset purchases, long-term leases and membership substitutions. McClary joins King & Spalding’s Healthcare team.
“Torrey’s excellent depth of experience on acquisitions, spin-offs and joint ventures, particularly in the healthcare arena, will make her a huge asset to our clients,” said Wick Sollers, head of the firm’s Government Matters practice group. “She’ll also be instrumental in broadening the firm’s healthcare-related offerings on the West Coast.”
McClary has 20 years of experience as a mergers and acquisitions attorney, and has been based in Los Angeles since 2014.
“Torrey has a stellar reputation and great energy,” said Jim Boswell, leader of King & Spalding’s Healthcare team. “She’s a builder and we’re thrilled she’ll be joining us.”
McClary is frequently quoted in national publications on trends in healthcare and is a sought-after speaker on trends and developments in the sector. She was named to the National Diversity Council’s 2016 list of Top Women Lawyers. McClary received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley and her J.D. from New York University School of Law.
“I am really pleased to be joining King & Spalding,” McClary said. “I am excited about the firm’s top-tier reputation, the scope and breadth of its healthcare capabilities and regulatory expertise, and its commitment to growth. The firm is well-positioned to support complex and innovative transactions, and I look forward to moving my practice to such a strong platform.”
