We know how to help our clients structure their transactions in order to reach their business goals while complying with the regulatory aspects of state and federal laws. We provide advice on the selection and formation of business entities, effective corporate governance practices, shareholder agreements, documentation of contractual relationships, tax implications, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, restructuring and reorganizations, and more. Serving as strategic advisors, we often act as outside general counsel, providing ongoing representation after the deal has closed.
We routinely assist on issues that arise during healthcare transactions, including provider, managed care, and commercial contracting; due diligence; negotiations; executive and workforce employment issues; risk assessment; succession; risk and insurance analysis and advice; and addressing regulatory compliance issues, such as antitrust, HIPAA compliance, Medicare and Medicaid audits, investigations, and certification, Stark and anti-kickback issues, and licensing and accreditation.
Working purposely with our Regulatory and Change of Ownership teams to bring the perspective and expertise necessary to the legal challenges facing the client’s business goals.
We have the experience needed to navigate not only the business aspects of the transaction but other sophisticated regulatory matters faced by a healthcare operator, owner or investor.
