Husch Blackwell, Kansas City
Curt Chase leads Husch Blackwell’s national team after being the first health care law attorney at an early iteration of the firm.
He has led the firm’s health care, life sciences and education industry team since 2013. Chase guides his clients through transactional law including mergers and acquisitions and complex integration arrangements with hospitals and physicians.
He’s previously closed a $275 million transaction for a large hospital system that gained full operational control and governance of three hospitals in Denver, Colorado.
Chase was first hired in 1995 by then-Blackwell Sanders as its first health care law attorney after he earned his law degree from the University of Iowa. As health care law grew in complexity, Chase’s role at the firm expanded with it. In 2006, Missouri Lawyers Media recognized his experience in the field in its Up & Coming Awards.
