Attorney Spotlight: Angela Humphreys

April 10, 2015

Angela HumphreysTell us about your practice. 

I focus my practice on healthcare mergers and acquisitions and operations. My clients include start-up companies, private equity firms and their portfolio companies, as well as publicly traded companies. A substantial part of my practice is focused on private equity backed middle-market companies, and I serve as the outside general counsel for a number of my clients.

What is an interesting trend happening right now related to your field of practice? 

We are seeing a lot of activity in the urgent care, dermatology and dental practice spaces. These transactions typically involve physician practices and can be quite complex, particularly around corporate practice of medicine issues, management fee structures and tax reorganizations designed to afford the buyer the ability to maintain a tax identification number for reimbursement purposes. Being able to work with clients in the structuring of transactions is one of my favorite aspects of my practice. 

In March 2015 you assumed leadership of the firm's healthcare practice. How have your years of practicing law prepared you for this new role? 

I have practiced law going on 20 years. During that time, I have learned that our firm consistently distinguishes itself with the promise of unmatched responsiveness and client service – and we deliver. I look forward to working with our group to continue to deliver and capitalize on that promise. Our group is at an exciting juncture. With almost 40 regulatory lawyers in Nashville, an office in D.C., and a specialty pharmacy practice headquartered in Memphis, we are poised to further grow our national healthcare practice.
