Best Lawyers in America 2023 Honors Two AEL Attorneys

August 20, 2022 - David M. Eskew

AEL is proud to announce that, on August 18, 2022, two of our attorneys were named to the 2023 lists of Best Lawyers in America.

Scott R. Landau was once again awarded with the honor of being ranked as a “Best Lawyer” in the category of Health Care Law. With a specialty in healthcare regulation, Scott advises healthcare clients on complex compliance issues, negotiates and structures sophisticated transactions, defends institutions and individuals in government enforcement matters, represents providers in insurance inquiries and audits, conducts sensitive internal investigations, and litigates complex commercial and civil disputes. Scott has vast experience in healthcare law, having previously served as Associate General Counsel for the Mount Sinai Health System focusing on healthcare regulatory matters, and before that, as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, where he specialized in healthcare fraud and enforcement matters.  Since January 2020, when he co-founded AEL with Kenneth Abell and David Eskew, Scott’s practice has focused almost exclusively on helping healthcare providers and healthcare adjacent concerns with their most pressing issues.   

Julia H. Sear, Associate, was listed as a “Best Lawyer: Ones to Watch” in Commercial Litigation. Through her work at AEL, Julia provides stellar counsel to clients for a variety of matters, including in-depth investigations, commercial disputes, intellectual property, antitrust and real estate matters. Prior to her joining AEL, Julia served as an Assistant District Attorney at the Manhattan DA’s Office, where she tried several cases, and at a large nationally-recognized firm.

About Best Lawyers

The Best Lawyers in America list, having been published for more than three decades, is one of the most reputable and recognized rankings of attorneys across the nation. Those honored on the list are divided by geographic region and practice area(s) and their work undergoes a significant peer review process.

Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America recognizes associates and other attorneys who are at earlier stages of their careers for their impressive performance and professional excellence in private practice. Although slightly newer than the traditional The Best Lawyers in America list, Ones to Watch utilizes the same robust peer-review process and methodology.
