“I love the ‘people side’ of the law and pride myself on being responsive. I’m committed to forging strong relationships with clients, agency officials and other attorneys in the community.”

Stephanie Sprague Sobkowiak is chair of the firm’s Health Care practice and a prior member of the firm’s Executive Committee. Stephanie is recognized as one of Connecticut’s top lawyers for health care providers.

Described in Chambers USA as “a really strong lawyer” who “cuts through the nonsense” to solve problems, Stephanie represents hospitals, physician groups, dental practices, community health centers and others in the health care industry. In her role, she partners with her clients on corporate, regulatory, compliance, risk management, fraud and abuse, medical staff and credentialing matters, Certificates of Need, and HIPAA and other patient privacy issues. In each relationship, she strives to understand her clients’ goals and strategic vision in order help develop strategies that make sense in the context of their businesses. 

Known for her negotiation skills, Stephanie credits her success to applying a pragmatic approach when putting together transactions or resolving disputes between her clients and opposing parties. She has negotiated countless corporate agreements, advocated for clients in matters before the Connecticut Department of Public Health, the Office of Health Strategy and the Department of Social Services and handled a variety of complex Medicare matters. She also drafts and negotiates purchase and sale transactions for clients in the health care space. 

Stephanie frequently shares her knowledge of federal and state health care regulatory requirements by speaking at seminars and authoring articles. Her insight on these topics, as well as other timely risk-avoidance issues, benefits a wide audience of health care professionals, lawmakers, accountants, lawyers and others.
