MILWAUKEE – Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c. (Reinhart) announces that Shareholder Heather L. Fields has been named a 2019 Women in the Law award recipient by Wisconsin Law Journal. The award recognizes outstanding achievement by the region’s top women in the practice of law.

Fields chairs the firm’s Hospitals and Health Care Systems Group and is also a member of the firm’s Hospice and Palliative Care, White Collar Litigation and Corporate Compliance, and Tax-Exempt Organizations groups where she has delivered informed counsel on a wide range of regulatory, transactional and compliance-related matters for more than 20 years.
