PHOENIX – Gammage & Burnham is pleased to announce that one of the firm’s Founding Members, Grady Gammage, Jr., and the firm’s Healthcare Group Leader, Member (and previous Managing Partner) Heather Boysel, have been selected for inclusion in the 2024 issue of Az Business Leaders Magazine. This annual publication by AZ Big Media profiles Arizona’s most respected and influential business leaders, celebrating their exceptional leadership as a driving force behind an organization’s success. The Az Business Leaders were selected by the executive leadership team at AZ Big Media in consultation with various industry experts in Arizona.
Grady Gammage, Jr. is one of the founders of Gammage & Burnham and has had a diverse 40+ year career in law and public policy in Arizona, focusing on the political aspects of real estate, development, and public policy. In his featured profile, he was asked his source of pride to which he responded, “I’ve done a lot of different kinds of things over the years, many of them at the cutting edge of Arizona’s growth and public policy. But rather than single out one project or case, I really take pride in Gammage & Burnham. We celebrated 40 years in business this year and have a collection of the best lawyers in Arizona.”
When asked about his professional advice to others, he said, “Be restless. It’s easy to do the same thing over and over. And doing that can be financially rewarding. But it can also be boring. It is more interesting to constantly challenge yourself to figure out something new.”
Heather Boysel leads the Healthcare Group at Gammage & Burnham, and previously served as the Managing Partner for the firm for more than four years. At the time, she was the youngest female managing partner at a mid-size Phoenix firm. As the group leader, Heather and her team have worked with Arizona’s top health care providers on a number of reimbursement disputes, in addition to providing regulatory advice. Heather has successfully obtained millions of dollars from health care insurers on behalf of her hospital clients and routinely handles medical reimbursement disputes on behalf of providers against commercial payors, Medicare auditors, AHCCCS contractors and other governmental entities.
When asked about her professional advice to others, she said, “My best advice is to do good work, be reliable and help others without expecting an instant reward. Your career is a long game.”
