Greenberg Traurig has bolstered its health care capabilities with the hire of the former secretary of Florida's Agency for Healthcare Administration.
Liz Dudek, who retired Oct. 3, will now join Greenberg Traurig's Tallahassee office as director of health care affairs. Dudek will join the firm's state and national health and FDA business practice, as well as its government law and policy practice.
"Her extensive experience in the public sector will complement our existing practice as we continue to grow," Fred Baggett, managing shareholder of Greenberg Traurig's Tallahassee office, said in a statement.
