Brian Park is an associate attorney with the Health Care practice group at Katz Korin Cunningham. Brian concentrates his practice on representing hospitals, physicians, nurses, and other health care providers in all manners of litigation and general legal advisement. He handles a wide variety of matters ranging from medical malpractice actions, license disciplinary investigations and complaints, commercial litigation, administrative proceedings and judicial reviews, and general civil defense.

Brian began his legal career defending governmental entities in civil litigation, working in both public and private practice. This provided an invaluable base of legal experience, as it provided mentorship from seasoned government lawyers and the opportunity to manage a caseload in state and federal court. His government litigation resume includes successful constitutional defenses of several Indiana statutes, including the Right to Farm Act (Indiana Code § 32-30-6-9), Indiana’s municipal dual-employment prohibition (Indiana Code § 3-5-9), and Indiana’s major political party statute (Indiana Code § 3-5-2-30).

Prior to joining Katz Korin Cunningham, Brian was legal counsel for several state agencies, including the Indiana Board of Medical Examiners, the Indiana Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Indiana School for the Deaf, and the Indiana Integrated Public Safety Commission. Brian's background representing these state agencies has led to a thorough understanding and familiarity with the laws, rules, and procedures governing license disciplinary matters of health care professionals.

Member, Indiana University Asian Alumni Association

Brian is married to his beautiful wife, Becky, and they have two young girls who are roughly two years apart. Thus, he has extensive experience in toddler dispute resolution. Among other things, he has mediated complex sibling disagreements involving: property right disputes over Bob the Koala, where one party asserts ownership via legal title (“Nana gave it to me for my birthday”) vs. a claim of ownership via possession (“I was playing with it first”); resolving whether “I’m not touching you” meets the elements of assault; and how to apportion liability for a rug that’s been smeared with play dough, where co-defendants jointly deny liability under oath (“I promise I didn’t do it”), further complicated by the assertion of a non-party affirmative defense (“the dog did it”).
