About Robin

As a shareholder of the firm, Robin Sheridan counsels health care clients in numerous aspects of health law.  She has served as general counsel to a growing community hospital and, in that role, advised on daily issues such as corporate governance, contract preparation and management, physician transactions, patient care issues, accreditation, EMTALA and other compliance matters.

Robin has experience in all aspects of employment law and human resources management, including hiring, discipline, discharge, drug testing and diversion, disability accommodation, discrimination and civil rights claims, implementation of family and medical leave and wage and hour laws. She also has experience preparing employment, severance, non-competition and confidentiality agreements. Robin has extensive training experience, advising managers and supervisors on a wide range of state and federal employment laws and on best practices related to human resources management.

She also focuses her practice in medical staff relations, routinely counseling clients in a wide range of issues, including disruptive physicians and medical staff governance (e.g., medical staff bylaws, rules and regulations and policies).

Over the last 25 years, Robin has worked in various human resources positions, including as a Human Resources Director and Senior Corporate Counsel, for a large, Wisconsin-based company with a significant health care component. As a result, she has a unique understanding of the day-to-day challenges faced by employers and the need for a practical approach.
