The healthcare industry is in the beginning of a transformational stage that will touch every healthcare organization. Traditional ownership structures of healthcare entities will be challenged and new alignments and efficiencies conceived and implemented. We are experienced in this type of transformative transaction - from the initial management and Boardroom discussions to negotiating and closing mergers, acquisitions, joint-ventures and other collaborations. The combination of our senior transactional counsel and our antitrust and regulatory expertise makes us valued counsel in these transactions.

Our attorneys specializing in healthcare industry transactions have deep experience in the unique business, regulatory, reimbursement and risk allocation factors that shape healthcare transactions. Purchasers frequently engage our health industry lawyers for specialized due diligence examinations of target company compliance history relating to anti-kickback, Stark, FDA, reimbursement and other laws. Our practice is national in scope and involves all substantive aspects of healthcare transactions, including multistate regulatory approvals, legal risk assessments, tax structuring and antitrust analysis, and public company and going-private issues.
