A native North Carolinian, Lisa Garrison maintains an active health care, antitrust, and business litigation practice advising and representing clients in a variety of industries. In the area of medical malpractice defense, she has handled hundreds of cases or claims for multiple hospital systems and their nurses, employed physicians, practices, and other hospital-owned entities. Her litigation experience includes multiple jury trials and appeals on claims ranging from negligence, malpractice, and wrongful death to breach of contract, product liability, antitrust/unfair and deceptive trade practices, and punitive damages. She handles claims from the date of the incident through every subsequent stage, including internal and regulator investigations, pre-suit negotiations, discovery involving hundreds of thousands of documents and electronic files, complex motions practice and hearings, and trials and appeals. She also counsels clients on health care issues, including risk management practices and policies and procedures, and she provides engaging and entertaining compliance training for clinicians.
Lisa provides a variety of antitrust services to clients in health care and other industries. Her antitrust services include operational counseling, compliance training and presentations, and representing clients who are undergoing complex governmental antitrust investigations, responding to antitrust CIDs, and engaged in antitrust litigation.
Complementing her civil litigation practice, Lisa is a founder of the firm's "Benefit Corporation Team." The "B Team" focuses on exploring and serving the legal needs of aspiring or existing "benefit" or "B Corp" companies — for-profit businesses that seek to better the world through identified social missions and by focusing on sustainability and TPL/3BL (the "triple bottom line" pillars of profits, people, and planet).
