Healthcare Mergers, Acquisitions & Dispositions

Since 2005, we have represented healthcare clients in transactions with a combined value in excess of $136 billion. We provide regulatory counsel to 35 publicly traded healthcare companies and more than 200 businesses in the healthcare industry located throughout the United States.

We have represented hospitals, health systems, academic medical centers, community-based and government-owned hospitals, long-term care providers, outpatient service providers, health plans and healthcare information technology companies in hundreds of healthcare M&A transactions. We also have extensive experience counseling venture capital, investment banking, and debt and equity financing sources, as well as management groups, from across the U.S.

Representing providers and non-providers, our attorneys have developed a thorough understanding of the legal and regulatory constraints affecting the healthcare industry. The industry engenders unique challenges in the areas of due diligence and evaluation of potential risks and liabilities. Due to the multidisciplinary teams we deploy for our clients, we bring a keen sensitivity to fraud and abuse and self-referral issues.

We routinely advise clients on:

  • Asset acquisitions.
  • Stock transactions.
  • Mergers and other business combinations, including transactions involving publicly traded companies.
  • Restructuring transactions.
  • Workout transactions involving financially distressed or bankrupt providers.
  • Joint ventures among healthcare providers.
  • Dispositions.
