ATLANTA – McGuireWoods Consulting is pleased to announce the return of Brian Looby to its Georgia State Government Relations group as a senior vice president. Looby, who is also a partner with McGuireWoods LLP, will assist clients with healthcare-related matters before the Georgia General Assembly and regulatory bodies.
Looby was vice president and senior corporate counsel for a medical professional liability insurance company before returning to McGuireWoods Consulting. He advised general counsel and executive management on complex corporate, healthcare, transactional, regulatory and litigation matters.
