Protecting the Cyber BakerHostetler continued to lead the way in data privacy and protection work in 2016. The team advised clients on more than 450 data security incidents during the year, including such high-profile matters as the cyberattacks on Banner Health, Hyatt Hotels and Madison Square Garden. The firm’s post-incident healthcare regulatory experience continues to be unmatched, and includes the defense of more than 125 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights (OCR) investigations. In 2016, we negotiated five resolution agreements with OCR, more than any other firm, including the largest resolution to date. March 2016 Healthcare Hookup BakerHostetler represented Kaiser Foundation Health Plan in its acquisition of Seattle’s Group Health Cooperative for approximately $1.8 billion in 2017. Both Kaiser and Group Health have nonprofit 501(c)(3) status, and the complex acquisition involved an integrated healthcare system that included health plans, a hospital, medical clinics and other facilities and technologies. The firm worked with Kaiser to develop a unique offer that would appeal to Group Health’s long-held values. Kaiser paid the $1.8 billion price to a newly established nonprofit and agreed to invest $1 billion to expand medical facilities, staff, technology and research in Washington state. The transaction will add 590,000 members to Kaiser’s existing pool of 10 million members across seven states.

519 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition BAKER & HOSTETLER LLP January 2016 Protecting Our Protectors BakerHostetler has made a significant pro bono commitment to The Veterans Consortium, a nonprofit group that represents veterans and family members for the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Our deep connection to veterans’ affairs spans the firm’s full history—from Newton Baker’s service as Secretary of War under President Wilson to the nearly 70 veterans currently with the firm. More than 65 lawyers received training in veterans’ claims in 2016, and we are handling nearly 10 percent of the Consortium’s annual caseload. GETTING HIRED Vault’s Verdict: Baker works hard to preserve its Midwestern friendly culture, which means that demonstrating your ability to work well in a collaborative environment is essential. Good grades and, for laterals, the ability to ‘hit the ground running’ are also important in the hiring process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
