Peak’s healthcare industry experience also includes serving as general counsel for a nationally recognized independent academic health system and deputy general counsel for one of the country’s largest healthcare supply chain, clinical consulting, and technology services organizations. In the technology sector, Peak’s in-house experience includes representing a global provider of software and technology where he negotiated numerous multi-million dollar commercial technology transactions worldwide.

Peak’s clients include hospitals and health systems, physician groups, urgent care clinics, medical spas, health and wellness providers, clinical labs, AI and emerging healthcare technology companies, digital health vendors, healthcare data and analytics companies, healthcare supply chain distributors, medical device manufacturers, group purchasing organizations, health benefit management vendors, retailers, senior and assisted living real estate developers, clinical research organizations, financial institutions, revenue cycle management service providers, private equity investors and portfolio companies, and joint ventures.

“Clients value Randy’s strategic guidance because of his exceptionally broad and sophisticated understanding of the legal, commercial, and technological complexities of the healthcare industry,” said Haynes Boone Partner Bill Morrison, co-chair of the firm’s Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice Group. “He keenly understands the business objectives of his clients, as well as the challenges and opportunities they face with technology innovations. We are pleased to have him as an addition to our team.”

Peak received his law degree from Pepperdine University School of law and holds undergraduate degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas at Dallas.

Peak said he has long admired Haynes Boone, having first worked with the firm as a client where he was immediately impressed with the firm’s approach to providing cost-effective sophisticated and practical legal advice. He added, “I am delighted to be teaming with such well-respected colleagues in growing the next generation of healthcare and technology practices such as the firm’s Precision Medicine and Digital Health Practice Group.”
