To be counsel of choice for those advancing a transformed health care system accessible to all.


At Eyman Associates, we share a passion for addressing the policies that shape our health care system, and a commitment to our clients’ work in transforming that system and making its benefits accessible to all. We also place special value on the unique insight that comes with combining legal expertise with an understanding of the policy underlying the law as it develops in real time at the federal and state level.

After over two decades in large national and international law firms, we decided to branch out and create a new practice that could be rooted in these values. In November 2011, we founded Eyman Associates—a boutique firm designed to provide a mix of legal, strategic and policy advice to health industry leaders in a flexible and efficient manner.

We continue to provide sophisticated, high-quality advice, while maintaining our desired hands-on and personal approach. We have the opportunity to work with the clients we choose, without the conflicts that are often present in a large firm, and with less overhead and bureaucracy. We value the important work our clients do and enjoy working collaboratively with them to further their missions.

Our roots in Washington, DC and our longstanding representation of America’s Essential Hospitals have given us the unique opportunity to impact health care policy at the national level and build relationships with policymakers and other leaders in the field. We have been able to leverage our active participation in the policy-making process, along with our deep and broad knowledge of federal health care laws, regulations, programs, and policies, to assist clients across the country in developing and implementing innovative local initiatives within the complex federal regulatory framework. In turn, our work on the ground in various states has informed our national advocacy and our understanding of how agencies are implementing the law in the real world.
