Emily Baver Bowie

ArentFox Schiff, Senior Attorney

Washington, District of Columbia

Emily counsels clients in ERISA and employee benefits litigation, health care litigation, and complex commercial litigation. Emily focuses her work primarily in the areas of ERISA and employee benefits litigation, health care litigation, and municipal and public bankruptcy. Emily provides advice and counseling with respect to commercial payer disputes and other issues that arise for group health plans and medical providers under ERISA, the Affordable Care Act, the Medicare Secondary Payer Act, Medicare, and various state laws. Emily is currently litigating several cases around the country asserting state law breaches of health care network contracts, and is knowledgeable about the complex relationship between ERISA and state law in these disputes. Emily also represents institutions that own and insure tax-exempt bonds. She has worked on several large municipal bankruptcies, including in San Bernardino, Detroit, and most recently, Puerto Rico. She regularly counsels clients on issues affecting the validity of the issuance of tax-exempt bonds, including the issuer's authority to issue bonds under state finance laws, state debt limits, and the interaction between state and local laws and issues of preemption. Through her Chapter 9 experience, Emily has developed a deep understanding of the various property interests vested in holders of tax-exempt bonds and how those interests can be impacted in bankruptcy. She has also analyzed constitutional issues that arise through destruction of these property rights. Emily also frequently represents creditors and trustees of creditor committees in Chapter 11 bankruptcies, in addition to her work as a general commercial litigator.
