Raquel focuses her practice on corporate and regulatory matters within the health care sector.

Raquel primarily services clients within the healthcare industry, including health systems, hospitals, outpatient clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, retail pharmacies, women's health centers, medical device companies, health insurance companies, and health plans. Whether working with a not-for-profit health system or a private equity-owned physician group, she combines her knowledge of general corporate law principles with her understanding of the ever-changing healthcare regulatory landscape to provide efficient, innovative, and personalized support.

Health care laws provide an additional complexity to M&A transactions, and Raquel helps her clients navigate those complexities. For example, she helps ensure HIPAA compliance from the start of negotiations through closing, analyzes the risk of healthcare fraud and abuse liability specific to each deal, and confirms whether change of ownership filings are needed in relation to any health care facility or equipment license.

Raquel understands the importance of staying up to date on all things health law and enjoys helping clients understand how new laws affect their day-to-day operations. This often involves providing clients with information on value-based reimbursement and federal and state COVID-19 waivers. While most of Raquel's health care practice is focused on transactional law, she also assists on matters involving government investigations, particularly FDA enforcement actions.

Raquel also supports clients in non-healthcare-related industries on a variety of general corporate matters, including entity formation, corporate reorganizations, and M&A transactions.

During law school, Raquel externed in the General Counsel's office at the American Dental Association. She also participated in her law school's Veterans Clinic, where she provided pro bono legal services to Chicago-area veterans.
