Cliff Stromberg is widely recognized as a national leader in negotiating complex transactions for academic medical centers, hospitals, managed care organizations, and other health care clients. He is a trusted advisor to boards and management in conceptualizing deal options and assessing the pros and cons of different moves in the market. He finds creative solutions and knows how to both negotiate hard and “get to yes.”
He and his team have closed tens of billions of dollars of health care deals in recent years. They have advised more than half of the leading academic medical centers in the nation – both public and private – and more than a dozen state and local governments on major strategic transactions. Cliff and his team can offer clients insights into best practices and emerging trends. They serve as an efficient “SWAT team,” bringing together legal experience and knowledge across all the operational areas embedded in a complex deal. They help clients realistically assess what works and what doesn’t, and how best to secure their goals.
Cliff also knows the expanding world of managed care, population health, accountable care organizations, and clinically integrated networks. His prior experience in government and his roles in creating, selling, combining, and restructuring managed care plans enable him to help clients stay ahead of the curve in this arena.
According to Chambers USA 2017, “Interviewees describe Cliff Stromberg as an extraordinary, almost unique resource in terms of his ability to help… think things through and get things done. He frequently advises on high-value transactions.” Interviewees for Chambers USA 2020 noted that “He is extraordinarily bright and experienced, and immediately accessible.”
The Financial Times, in naming Hogan Lovells as one of the “most innovative” law firms, cited as one example Cliff’s ability at “managing complexity and scale” in a large hospital transaction.
