Mergers, Joint Ventures & Practice Acquisitions

We represent clients in health care facility mergers and acquisitions, as well as those participating in joint ventures formed to own or operate various types of health care facilities. We have served as lead counsel in tax-exempt health system mergers and joint ventures and hundreds of physician practice acquisitions involving thousands of physicians. Our team brings a full range of regulatory expertise to bear in structuring such transactions correctly on the front end. We navigate issues involving state licensing and certificate of need requirements, Medicare, Medicaid, private pay enrollment, conditions of participation, reimbursement, tax-exempt finance, statutory, regulatory and contractual requirements, labor and employment, non-compete, antitrust and all other issues facing major transactions.
