Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Angela Humphreys provided comments for an article in Bloomberg Law about the overlap of the healthcare and legal industries in Nashville. “Nashville has been called the Silicon Valley of health care,” said Angela. “Many law firms in Nashville, including ours, have grown up with the health-care industry as it has matured in Nashville. There is expertise in this city that is in some respects unmatched.”
In addition to the city’s growing legal industry, the healthcare industry has given rise to complementary and supporting industries in Nashville, such as IT. Angela points to the rise in private equity investments as another example, “Over the last five years we have seen a sharp uptick in private equity investing in health-care services, particularly outpatient services companies.”
