Private Equity

Our private equity attorneys have extensive experience in structuring complex private equity acquisitions and financings. Our private equity practice is especially active in the middle-market, but we also have represented management groups, issuers and special committees in high-profile, multi-billion dollar transactions—for example, we represented Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) in what at the time was the largest going private transaction in U.S. history.

We represent both domestic and international clients in a broad range of industries, including healthcare, manufacturing and financial services. As a result of the depth and breadth of our experience and the extensive network we have established in the private equity community, we play an active role in introducing prospective portfolio companies and private equity firms. We also work closely with regional and national venture capital, growth equity and mezzanine capital funds.

With offices in Nashville and Washington, D.C., our experience in healthcare private equity transactions is particularly robust. We provide our healthcare private equity clients with a fully integrated range of services that includes an effective blend of transactional, regulatory and operational counsel. We routinely assist clients with comprehensive due diligence of healthcare targets to help them understand key issues and regulatory risks associated with an investment. We also assist our private equity clients and their portfolio companies in healthcare investigations and as compliance counsel. As part of our comprehensive healthcare private equity practice, we are active in major trade associations, including the Association for Corporate Growth and the Healthcare Private Equity Association (HCPEA), and we host a national conference each winter for healthcare private equity investors.

  • Leveraged buyouts
  • Going private transactions
  • Sponsor-sponsor transactions
