NEW YORK – Global law firm Reed Smith today announced the arrival of Kimberly Gold, who joins as a partner in the Life Sciences Health Industry Group in the New York office. Previously with Norton Rose Fulbright, Gold follows a 17-member team, including seven partners, who joined Reed Smith in four offices in May.

Gold’s practice is focused on transactional, regulatory, data privacy and cybersecurity matters for health care and life sciences companies. She will co-lead the HIPAA and Health Privacy & Security practice at Reed Smith with Brad Rostolsky, a partner in the firm’s Philadelphia office.

“Kim has a wealth of knowledge advising clients on privacy and cybersecurity matters, accreditation issues impacting academic medical centers and teaching hospitals, and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will complement and expand our existing strengths,” said Scot Hasselman, who co-chairs the Life Sciences Health Industry Group. “We are delighted that she is joining her former colleagues from Norton Rose Fulbright, and our growing life sciences health care industry team.”
