Prominent health care team joins Dilworth Paxson’s Princeton office

Dilworth Paxson LLP on Thursday announced it added two lawyers, Partner Christina Strong and of counsel Kiliaen Van Rensselaer Strong, to its Princeton office.

“Our region is an international magnet for businesses in health sciences,” Dilworth Chairman Larry McMichael said. “The growth of Dilworth’s Health Law practice is a strategic objective, and we’re delighted to have Christina and Kiliaen join the health care lawyers already at Dilworth, making Health Law one of our preeminent practices.”

Christina Strong focuses her practice on health care law and the general corporate representation of nonprofits. She has provided counsel on such diverse issues of regulatory compliance as corporate goverance and compliance, HIPAA and research.

Strong’s work in health care law and policy involves representing numerous nonprofit and provider organizations, as well as trade groups, medical societies and individual providers and practices. She has particular experience in the areas of organ and tissue donation for transplant, education and research, and has been closely involved in state and national law and policy development concerning authorization for and allocation of organs and tissues, neurologic death, donation after circulatory death and medical examiner law development, as well as end-of-life issues.

Kiliaen Van Rensselaer Strong’s practice focuses on the diverse but interrelated areas of cannabis, life sciences, health care regulatory compliance, privacy and technology, and nonprofit law.

Strong has been heavily involved in New Jersey’s cannabis industry since the first medical dispensaries opened in the state. He has hands-on experience with the industry’s unique aspects, including license applications, general operations, contract negotiations, regulatory compliance, real estate, labor and marketing. Strong has represented cultivators, dispensaries, manufacturers, wholesalers, CBD startups and retailers, and research and policy organizations. His regulatory and compliance practice within the life sciences and organ and tissue donation industries has involved working with tissue banks, eye banks, non-transplant anatomical banks, donor registries, medical education and research entities, and organ procurement organizations.
