Troutman Pepper Partner Erin Whaley Named to Virginia Lawyers Weekly’s 2021 Class of ‘Influential Women of Law’

RICHMOND, Va. - Erin Whaley, a partner in Troutman Pepper's Health Sciences Practice Group, has been named to the Influential Women of Law Class of 2021 by Virginia Lawyers Weekly. Now in its third year, the awards program honors women attorneys and judges for their career excellence including their superior client work, commitment to their communities, and service to the profession.

Whaley represents health care providers and payers on the full spectrum of legal issues they confront daily. Her regulatory experience includes advising clients on compliance with the plethora of federal laws that govern the health care industry, including Stark, the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), the False Claims Act and HIPAA, as well as project-related state licensure issues and certificates of need.

As a complement to her traditional health care practice, Whaley has developed a niche focus in health information technology. Her health IT experience includes representing providers in the negotiation of various health IT contracts involving, among other things, electronic health records, revenue cycle management, population health and telehealth.

Whaley currently serves as the pro bono chair of Troutman Pepper's Richmond office, where she helps lead and organize the office's efforts to provide pro bono legal services. Last year, she was recognized as a 'Trailblazer' in health care and life sciences by the National Law Journal.

Health sciences is a core practice at Troutman Pepper. The firm has more than 150 attorneys who represent clients such as innovative biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device developers and manufacturers; physicians, hospitals and other health care providers; health insurers and other payors; and a wide range of members of the health care supply chain.

The Influential Women of Law Class of 2021 will be celebrated during an online recognition program on July 20 and profiled in a special supplement to the Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
