Robert Charrow, the Greenberg Traurig shareholder picked to serve as general counsel to the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, pledged on Thursday to resist any efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act — regulations that Senate Democrats said remain the “law of the land” following the failure of Republican-backed reform legislation.
