Katherine I. Funk Joins Baker Donelson's Health Law Group


Katherine I. Funk, an experienced antitrust and business attorney, has joined Baker Donelson as a shareholder in the Firm's Washington, D.C. office and as a member of the Health Law Group.

Ms. Funk, who will also work with Baker Donelson's Government Enforcement and Investigations and Business Litigation groups, has nearly 30 years of experience navigating antitrust and business issues on behalf of clients in a range of industries. She represents clients before the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice, and also provides day-to-day business counsel on licensing and distribution arrangements, strategic transactions, competitor engagements, and global corporate compliance in industries including health care, technology and agriculture.

Within the health care industry, Ms. Funk works with clients on the formation and operation of clinically integrated networks, the buying and selling of provider practices, and other health care system transactions. Prior to joining Baker Donelson, she was a partner in several AmLaw 100 firms and served at the FTC as an attorney in the Mergers 1 section.

"With growing consolidation in the hospital and health care sectors post-pandemic and the likelihood of vigorous antitrust enforcement under the Biden Administration, our clients are facing greater antitrust risks. Because health care antitrust issues are especially unique, it is critical to have an antitrust attorney who understands the nuances involved. Katie is just such an attorney," said Bill Mathias, co-chair of the Baker Ober Health Law Group. "She is a strong complement to our health care regulatory and transactional practices. Katie will be a truly valued strategic advisor to our clients as they navigate the complex and changing antitrust landscape."

Ms. Funk is a member of the American Bar Association Antitrust and Business Law Sections and a member of the Antitrust Section of the American Health Law Association.
