Healthcare Real Estate

In healthcare real estate transactions, even the smallest details have a huge impact. Successfully navigating this sector requires adeptly anticipating the ever-changing web of healthcare regulations while possessing a deep understanding of real estate law. We handle the unique aspects of healthcare real estate transactions on a daily basis and are accustomed to dealing with licensing, reimbursement, fraud and abuse, and accessibility issues and other specialized areas of this sector.

Across the nation, we represent providers in connection with the acquisition, development, leasing and disposition of medical facilities. Our clients include owners and operators of hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, senior living facilities, medical office buildings, dialysis clinics, urgent care centers and more. These healthcare clients range in size from single-facility owners to large public companies with national footprints and massive real estate portfolios.

We are committed to providing our clients a solution-oriented, cost-effective approach to dealing with real estate in this heavily regulated and fluid industry.

Our practice covers a wide variety of needs:

  • Acquisitions and dispositions
  • Construction, development and expansion of facilities (including certificates of need)
  • Large portfolio acquisitions, sales and financings
  • Leases (including ground leases)
  • Management agreements
  • Sale-leasebacks, including RIDEA structures
  • Day-to-day operational advice

Our experience also includes litigating a range of real estate conflicts, such as eminent domain matters, mechanic’s lien suits, quiet title actions and various types of contract disputes. We provide representation in hearings and other proceedings before boards and councils concerned with licensing, zoning, planning and land use issues.
