Brian Stimson, a new partner in AGG’s Healthcare and Litigation practices, was featured in Law360 on October 12, 2023, where he was quoted about his arrival to the firm’s growing Washington, D.C., office.
Brian previously served as an attorney with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”), including roles as acting general counsel and principal deputy general counsel. He helped lead the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which earned him the Superior Service Medal from the HHS’ Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response.
Brian told Law360 he was grateful for the opportunity to serve our country during the Public Health Emergency.
“The overarching challenge of the work at HHS was how to address such a sweeping set of issues as our understanding of COVID-19 evolved,” he said. “It was a dynamic environment where we tackled new problems every day.”
Discussing the decision to join AGG, Brian cited the firm’s “tremendous provider plaintiffs’ practice.”
“They also walk the talk on alternative fee arrangements for providers,” he said. “So, it’s a great fit for me. I still represent providers in administrative audits, investigations, and enforcement actions as part of a Chambers-rated Healthcare practice, but now with much greater flexibility to represent providers as plaintiffs.”
