Mr. Colin Zick, Counsel

Partner, Foley Hoag LLP
Colin Zick’s practice is focused on health care and compliance issues, and often involves the intersection of those two subjects in investigations, administrative proceedings or litigation. His work has had a particular emphasis on compliance issues related to life sciences, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, laboratories, hospitals, providers, and provider organizations. This compliance work includes helping clients establish and maintain effective compliance programs. Zick also defends clients in disputes alleging kickbacks, overpayments, and billing and coding problems, and represents clients before state health care licensing and regulatory entities. Zick’s practice also includes work on health care transactional matters. These projects include mergers, the establishment of joint ventures, the creation of new entities, drafting and negotiation of service and employment contracts, creation of patient assistance programs, and negotiating clinical trial agreements. He also frequently counsels technology and consumer-facing clients on issues involving information privacy and security (including HIPAA and other federal and state data privacy and security laws, EU privacy issues and data breach response).
Zick co-founded the Foley Hoag’s Data Security and Privacy Practice Group and regularly contributes to its "Security, Privacy and the Law" blog. He also has successfully litigated commercial disputes, covenants not to compete, antitrust and unfair competition claims, and copyright infringement claims.
