Sheppard Mullin New York Corporate partner John Hempill has been appointed as a member of the SEC Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies for a term beginning immediately and ending on the termination date of the Committee, which is set for September 24, 2015. 


Sheppard Mullin’s award-winning Healthcare Practice was named to the American Bar Association’s Health Law Section’s first annual “Regional Law Firm Recognition Top 10 List,” which recognized by geographic region the largest health law firms based on lawyer membership in the Health Law Section as of November 12, 2013.

Sheppard Mullin was ranked #2 for the West Region.
