Health law attorney Burbank joins Rainey Kizer




Christie Kizer Burbank has joined the Chattanooga office of Rainey, Kizer, Reviere & Bell. Burbank is an experienced health care regulatory, transactional and contract law attorney.

Burbank has spent the last two decades representing health care providers in all aspects of health law, including health care contract drafting, transactions and negotiations, fraud and abuse analyses, hospital and physician arrangements (such as physician employment and exclusive coverage agreements), provider self-referral and kickback matters, HIPAA and privacy issues, compliance plan development and clinical research issues.

The addition of Burbank makes the firm’s practice a family affair, as she’s the daughter of founding member Jerry Kizer, Jr.

Burbank has been distinguished as a Tennessee Bar Foundation Fellow (class of 2018), was named Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year in Health Care Law in Chattanooga in 2018 and serves on the executive council of the Tennessee Bar Association Health Law Section, having served as that section’s chair in 2015.

Burbank is involved with her local health care community in a volunteer capacity, with emphasis on children’s health and well-being. She has served as past chair and now current member of two board committees of the Erlanger Health Systems Foundation, board secretary of the Creative Discovery Museum, board member of the Greater Chattanooga Colon Cancer Foundation, member of the Chattanooga Downtown Rotary Club, ambassador of Siskin Children’s Institute and youth educator at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Lookout Mountain.

Burbank also served as a member of Memorial Health Care System’s Institutional Review Board for more than 10 years, a board member of Chambliss Center for Children for nine years and a board member of Signal Centers for six years.

Burbank holds a J.D. from the University of Tennessee College of Law (2000) and a degree in mathematics from Sewanee: The University of the South (1994). She’s licensed in Tennessee and Georgia.

Founded in 1975, Rainey Kizer is composed of 40 lawyers representing local, regional and national clients from its five offices in Memphis, Jackson, Nashville and Chattanooga.
