Kellogg, Hansen, Todd, Figel & Frederick, PLLC
Mr. Bird is a litigation partner with Kellogg Hansen, a law firm in Washington, D.C. He specializes in complex commercial cases for plaintiffs and defendants throughout the country. Most recently, he has represented employers and union trusts in an antitrust case against Sutter Health, a large Northern California hospital system. After five and a half years of litigation, the parties settled on the eve of Mr. Bird’s opening statement.
