MIAMI, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Akerman Senterfitt, one of the largest law firms in Florida and one of the top 100 firms in the U.S., announced today the expansion of its Healthcare practice with significant additions to its policy, regulatory and litigation team. Five healthcare professionals have joined the practice in the firm's Washington, D.C., Denver and Tallahassee offices. Akerman's Healthcare practice is the largest in Florida and has grown by over 20 percent since the beginning of the year.

"The rapid growth of Akerman's Healthcare practice is representative of our continued commitment to address the current needs of our clients while remaining well equipped to address any regulatory and structural changes to the healthcare industry in America," said Andrew Smulian, Chairman of Akerman.

Experienced in healthcare fraud and abuse matters and a former Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, Caccia serves as Co-Chair of Akerman's White Collar Crime and Government Investigations practice. Donnelly brings substantial federal healthcare policy experience, having previously served as Assistant Secretary for Legislation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and later as Special Assistant for Legislative Affairs at the White House.
