Faegre Drinker announced today that health care partner Randy Peak and counsel David Rose have joined the firm in Dallas. Peak and Rose will also serve as vice presidents of Innovative Health Strategies, Faegre Drinker’s procurement and outsourcing consulting firm.
Peak advises and represents health care, life sciences and technology clients as a business-oriented and strategic legal advisor — leveraging his extensive industry background, in-house experience and multidisciplinary proficiency. He has worked with clients including health care providers, public and privately held commercial enterprises, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and nonprofit organizations. Peak also provides clients with outside general counsel and legal department outsourcing services.
“Randy and David bring extensive backgrounds in emerging areas in the health care space. Their skillsets greatly expand and diversify our larger transactional and regulatory practice,” stated Steve Lokensgard, leader of the health care practice group. “We look forward to the innovative ideas and solutions they will bring to our clients across the industry, and we are delighted to welcome them to Faegre Drinker.”
With nearly three decades of legal and commercial experience in his career, Peak serves as a trusted advisor to his clients providing practical legal guidance and counsel in support of innovative and strategic transactions. He advises clients across the health care and life sciences sectors as they negotiate all manner of commercial, supply chain and technology transactions. He earned his bachelor’s degrees from the University of Texas and Juris Doctor from Pepperdine University School of Law.
Rose assists clients in establishing their health care operations, consulting on contractual arrangements and maintaining compliance within the heavily regulated health care marketplace, leveraging his in-house experience as a former general counsel, compliance and privacy officer to address their goals with an insider’s point of view. From the largest group purchasing organizations in the United States to health care start-ups and small physician practices, Rose has advised health care entities of all sizes. Rose earned his bachelor’s degree from Trinity University, MBA from the University of Dallas and Juris Doctor from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.
“We are excited to add Randy and David to our dynamic team in Dallas,” said office leader Dawn McCord. “They bring a sophisticated new offering to our health care industry clients in Texas, along with significant local ties to our community.”
The firm’s Dallas office is made up of more than 20 attorneys across industries that help clients faced with challenging commercial litigation, class actions, multidistrict litigation, complex insurance, construction litigation, product liability matters and more. Additionally, the office has strong capabilities in corporate restructuring. In 2024 the firm will move its location to the KPMG Plaza at Halls Art, located in the Dallas Art District.
