We are pleased to welcome

Kate F. Stewart

back to Mintz as Of Counsel in our Health Law Practice.

Kate is based in our Boston office, where she represents clients across the health care sector, from traditional health care providers to payors to digital health start-ups. She draws on her in-house experience with an academic and community hospital system to provide holistic solutions on a broad range of legal issues, including digital health and privacy regulations, clinical trial compliance and design, and transactional matters.

Kate has deep experience related to clinical and bench research compliance, including contractual matters, FDA regulations and NIH rules, as well as the complex issues at the intersection of transformative models for conducting clinical trials. She also regularly counsels clients on privacy compliance matters involving HIPAA policies, compliant solutions to data sharing, and responses to potential breaches under HIPAA and state data breach rules. In addition, she has extensive experience with physician contracting and licensing and scope of practice issues. Her practice also encompasses representing providers, payors, and investors in mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures and counseling nonprofit health organizations on entity formation, governance, and tax-exemption issues.

Prior to rejoining Mintz, Kate served as associate general counsel of Beth Israel Lahey Health. She earned her JD, cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center, an MPH from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and a BA, summa cum laude, from Tufts University.
