Nossaman Expands Into San Diego with Prominent Healthcare Industry Veteran David Balfour
Carlsbad, CA — Nossaman has expanded its Healthcare Practice Group with the addition of renowned healthcare attorney David Balfour, who will join the Firm as Partners in its newly opened San Diego area office. David joins from DiCaro, Coppo & Popcke.
David previously served as a Partner at DiCaro, Coppo & Popcke, where his practice consisted primarily of representing health care providers and facilities in litigation and professional licensing matters. He is the current President of the California Academy of Attorneys of Healthcare Practitioners (CAAHCP) and was co-chair of the Law & Medicine Committee of the San Diego County Bar Association from 2006-2010. He is also a member of the San Diego Organization of Healthcare Leaders (SOHL), the local chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). He received his undergraduate degree in economics from Yale University and his J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
"We are excited David is joining the Firm" said Tom Curtis, Chair of the Healthcare Practice Group. "His intimate knowledge of California’s healthcare landscape, deep connections in the San Diego region and statewide, and track record of achieving successful results add immediate value for our clients."
Nossaman's Healthcare Practice Group concentrates its efforts in the transactional, regulatory, operational, legislative and litigation arenas, and has been perennially ranked by Chambers as one of the leading healthcare groups in California. Over the past several years, the Group has grown its presence in California with a significant addition—Raja Sekaran, who joined as a Partner in the San Francisco office in April of 2017.
"Nossaman’s preeminence in healthcare law, and its involvement in many of the landmark healthcare law efforts in California make the Firm a great fit for my practice," added David. "I am excited to join."
The San Diego office will allow Nossaman to serve healthcare clients in the region, as well as work closely with existing clients in other areas. These clients include the Olivenhain Municipal Water District, the Rainbow Municipal Water District, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, the San Diego County Employees’ Retirement Association, the Padre Dam Municipal Water District and the California American Water Company.
"We're delighted to open an office in the region, which is home to many vibrant public and private companies and organizations that drive California's economy," said George Joseph, Nossaman's Managing Partner. "The office will help us deepen our relationships with current area clients, and allow us to pursue additional opportunities."
