The Nan Gallagher Law Group is proud to announce that the firm has brought back Karen Wachs and has added Blair Zwillman to the roster.

As co-chair of the Firm’s Litigation, Transactional, and ERISA Divisions, Karen Wachs practices as both a healthcare and commercial litigator and transactional attorney. A dynamic ‘transactional litigator’, Karen provides multi-faceted representation to medical practices and practitioners in practice areas including healthcare, employment, ERISA, commercial real estate, and corporate and business matters. Karen works hand-in-hand with Ms. Gallagher and is involved in all aspects of litigation including litigation strategy concerning insurance, compliance, employment and contract issues. Karen also facilitates the purchase and sale of medical practices and commercial real estate, review of employment/contractor agreements, formation of new practices, separation from practices, and business structuring.

Ms. Gallagher touts Karen for her unmatched analytical skills and attention to detail. They share the same values as to how physician litigations and transactional services are administered.

Blair R. Zwillman co-chairs the Firm’s Criminal and White Collar Crime Divisions and has over 40 years of experience with the criminal justice system. After serving as a Law Clerk to Superior Court Judge Joseph M. Thuring in Hudson County, he became a Deputy Attorney General in the Division of Criminal Justice, a section of the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, where he prosecuted cases. In 1979, Blair left state service and began the private practice of criminal law, with his primary goal to assist and defend those charged with crime.

Blair also handles licensing issues for doctors, dentists, and other professionals before state licensing boards.  He regularly collaborates with Ms. Gallagher on Qui Tams, defense of healthcare fraud and improper coding claims, and on legally structuring medical practices and lease agreements to avoid scrutiny from state and federal authorities for Stark & AntiKickback violations.
