Chicago Health Care partner Fatema Zanzi is on the cover of the summer 2017 edition of Loyola Law, the Loyola University Chicago Law School’s magazine, and she is featured in the article, “The Faces of Chicago Health Law.”
Fatema was profiled alongside other prominent alumni of Loyola University Chicago’s Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy who hold prestigious positions at top law firms, health care-related companies, and government and policy organizations across the country.
Today, Fatema is an instrumental member of Drinker Biddle’s health care practice handling significant health system mergers and acquisitions. She also counsels health care providers on complex fraud and abuse and other regulatory matters. Her clients include large health systems, community hospitals, children’s hospitals, teaching hospitals and academic medical centers, physician group practices, and health industry suppliers.
Fatema’s passion for health law extends beyond her own practice advising health care providers. She was recently appointed Chair of the Children’s Hospital Affinity Group of the American Health Lawyer’s Association. In 2015, she was elected as one of two public members to the Board of Directors of the American Board of Medical Specialties Research and Education Foundation (ABMS REF).
She is deeply involved with ensuring the continued success of the Beazley Institute and volunteers annually to judge the L. Edward Bryant, Jr. National Health Law Transactional Competition, which challenges students to apply corporate lawyering skills and provide legal advice to a hypothetical health care client. The competition was named in honor of Ed Bryant, a former Drinker Biddle Health Care Group chair and pioneer of the health law field.
Fatema is the hiring partner for Drinker Biddle’s Chicago office and serves on the firm-wide hiring committee. She also serves as a member of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
Fatema resides in Chicago with her husband, Abizer (an Assistant U.S. Attorney) and her 7-year old son, Amir.
