William "Bill" Boling is the owner/principal of Boling & Company, where he and his associates provide legal and consulting services to hospitals, physician groups, academic medical centers, telemedicine entrepreneurs, and health IT startups. Bill has been an active member of the Georgia bar for more than 30 years. He began practicing healthcare law while he was a partner at Shaw Maddox Graham Monk & Boling in Rome, Georgia, where he represented health providers in medical negligence actions and myriad other matters.
Bill later assumed the role of general counsel at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) Health System, where he oversaw significant development of MCG's legal services as the health system was being restructured and effectively reborn. The senior leadership experience Bill developed over those five years in Augusta later landed him in some of the most respected healthcare branches in Atlanta, such as Powell Goldstein LLP; Epstein, Becker, Green PC; and Morris, Manning & Martin LLP.
In 2012, Bill started his own practice to better target the areas of law and business he found most stimulating and urgently needing attention, and to do so in his own mold. Today his clients include hospitals, academic medical centers, physician groups, and health IT startups, among others.
Bill has taught healthcare law at the University of Georgia School of Law, health administration law at Georgia State University, and FDA law at the University of Georgia School of Pharmacy. In addition, he frequently lectures around the state and region on healthcare topics including healthcare compliance, Medicaid and Medicare policy, healthcare transactions, and regulatory issues.
