The New York Alliance for Donation is proud to announce an exciting partnership with James Lytle, Partner, Government and Healthcare Practice, of Manatt, Phelps and Phillips, LLP. Mr. Lytle will be assisting the Alliance with its public policy and government affairs endeavors which focus on improving the state of donation in New York.
Mr. Lytle is the partner in charge of the firm's Albany office and oversees the firm's New York State legislative lobbying and regulatory practice. He represents a broad array of clients before the Legislature, the executive branch and the courts, both within New York State and beyond, generally regarding issues at the intersection of the public and private sectors for heavily regulated industries. The firm's New York governmental practice includes the representation of clients in the healthcare, educational, cultural, biomedical, insurance, pharmaceutical, economic development and other sectors. Mr. Lytle's regulatory and legislative work has involved issues relating to insurance regulation, biomedical research, services and programs for persons with disabilities, procurement and government contracting, human services, the regulation of the professions, and educational issues.
In the highly regulated modern healthcare environment, Mr. Lytle provides strategic guidance on legislative, regulatory, transactional, and litigation matters, relating to both state and federal healthcare law and policy, and devotes a considerable amount of his practice to representing healthcare entities in audit, investigative and enforcement matters, including those initiated by the New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General and similar entities.
Mr. Lytle served as Assistant Counsel for Health and Human Services to Governor Mario M. Cuomo from 1983-86.
