Manatt Adds Fatema F. Zanzi to Growing Healthcare Practice

Strengthens transactional and regulatory capabilities of multidisciplinary healthcare practice Manatt Health

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP announced today that Fatema F. Zanzi joined the firm as a partner in the Chicago office, continuing Manatt’s expansion of its national healthcare practice. Zanzi is a respected transactional and regulatory attorney specializing in legal issues facing the healthcare industry, with experience in guiding health systems through major strategic transactions, as well as healthcare compliance, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act laws, medical staff issues, fraud and abuse, and other matters facing healthcare providers and suppliers. 

“We are excited to welcome Fatema to Manatt Health,” said William Bernstein, chair of Manatt Health. “Her consulting background and superb legal experience will provide our clients with the insights they need to navigate the healthcare industry’s complex legal landscape. As M&A activity in the industry continues at a record-breaking pace, we are expanding our Manatt Health team and strengthening the capabilities our clients need in the face of increasing consolidation and regulatory changes.”

Zanzi joins Manatt Health from Drinker Biddle following the recent additions of Keith R. Anderson and Linda S. Moroney, two Chicago-based transactional, tax and regulatory attorneys with extensive experience advising for-profit and nonprofit health systems and providers throughout the healthcare industry.

“Joining Manatt Health at this time is a tremendous opportunity,” said Zanzi. “I have long admired its effective integration of both legal and consulting services for the healthcare industry. With the continued growth of our health transactional practice, Manatt has a strong and exciting vision for its future. I look forward to working with the team to provide clients with first-rate legal counsel.” 

“Fatema will be a tremendous asset to our growing Midwest practice,” said William Quicksilver, CEO and managing partner of Manatt. “Her healthcare industry experience will be vital as we continue to put together a unique combination of consulting and legal capabilities that provides total support to our clients throughout the transactions process.”
