Abbie P. Maliniak, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience representing health care providers and medical staffs, has joined the growing health care practice at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP in the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Maliniak handles a broad range of administrative and regulatory matters, and counsels health care providers on a wide variety of operational issues, including compliance with HIPAA and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act. She has successfully argued cases before state appellate and supreme courts, and reached positive outcomes for her clients in many arbitrations and mediations.

She joins the firm from Fenton Nelson, where she has been a partner since 2010.

“We are very pleased to add Abbie to our team,” said Rick Ellingsen, chair of the health care practice at Davis Wright. “From the new HIPAA compliance rules to the constantly evolving regulations regarding medical staff, our health care clients, and the many other clients touched by health care laws, need clear and decisive advocacy. Abbie brings that kind of knowledge and leadership.”

Maliniak’s arrival follows closely on the addition of three other attorneys to Davis Wright’s health care team: partner David Gee, partner Emily Studebaker, and senior associate Amy Kauppila. Maliniak is joining the firm as of counsel.

“The depth of experience and commitment to client service at Davis Wright makes it an ideal place to practice health care law,” said Maliniak. “I am delighted to offer my current and future clients the benefit of this firm’s commitment to excellence.”

Maliniak received her B.A. from UCLA and her J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law, Newark.
