The executive vice president and chief executive officer of the American Health Lawyers Association, Marilou King, is leaving the organization to return to private law practice.
Effective Dec. 30, King will join the Washington office of McDermott Will & Emery as a partner.
King, 50, came to the organization in 1991 after 13 years of practicing healthcare law.
Last year King led the merger of the group, then known as the National Health Lawyers Association, with the American Academy of Healthcare Attorneys. The AAHA had been part of the American Hospital Association. The merged group has about 10,000 members.
