Health Care Business Transactions and Corporate Law

Health care transactions present unique challenges because of the industrys complex set of regulations. Members of our health care focus team work alongside attorneys in other practice areas who have extensive experience with complicated transactions. We can assist providers in the sale or acquisition of physician practices or in joint ventures between physicians and health care systems. We help clients navigate through the various legal obstacles created by reimbursements, self-referral prohibitions, anti-kickback laws, antitrust laws, licensing and certification laws, and a host of other legal and regulatory concerns that are uniquely applicable to the health care industry.

We routinely assist health care providers in structuring new business enterprises in addition to restructuring current businesses to comply with regulatory changes. Attorneys on our health care focus team have structured multiple physician organizations, physician/hospital organizations, and integrated delivery systems. Our depth of background in the area of integrated delivery system development is of particular importance as providers react to the Affordable Care Act and the creation of accountable care organizations and similar organizations.
