ByrdAdatto Opens a Chicago Office

Bradford E. Adatto | 12.5.16


ByrdAdatto is expanding its national footprint with the addition of two prominent business and health care attorneys in the firm’s newly opened Chicago office at 180 N. LaSalle, Suite 3700, Chicago, Illinois 60601.

Joining the firm are two extremely talented business and health care attorneys, Alex Thiersch and Renee Coover.

Alex will serve as Managing Partner of the Chicago office.  His practice mirrors ByrdAdatto’s national aesthetics practice, representing plastic surgeons, medical spas, and aesthetic practices in business and compliance matters.  He is a prolific speaker, lecturing throughout the world on aesthetic regulations and compliance issues.  He is also the founder and CEO of the American Med Spa Association (AmSpa), a trade group and consulting agency that provides comprehensive, relevant, and timely legal and business resources for medical spas and medical aesthetic practices throughout the United States.

Renee has a unique background blending litigation with health care law. As a former litigator in high-stakes employment cases, Renee has extensive experience counseling and representing businesses in employment matters, policies, and contract disputes defending business owners in state and federal trials.  Renee uses this courtroom experience to provide a unique insight on the transactional matters she handles for ByrdAdatto.  She has also served as General Counsel for AmSpa, advising health care professionals on regulatory and legal issues governing the medical spa industry.

“Alex and I have spoken together at medical conferences around the country over the past few years and we quickly identified a cultural and business synergy with his law practice and ByrdAdatto,” says Michael Byrd.  “We are energized to have two talented yet grounded attorneys join our team and expand our national reach.” says Brad Adatto.
