AGG’s Post-Acute and Long-Term Care industry team is a major area of focus for the firm. We work with clients across the United States – from local single-entity nursing facilities to the largest regional and national nursing home chains, including ten of the top fifteen largest nursing home companies nationwide. Clients trust us to help them with a broad spectrum of issues they face including regulation, compliance, reimbursement, mergers, acquisitions, and dispositions. In particular, we’ve earned a national reputation as leaders in nursing home acquisitions and in administrative appeal work.
The long-term care industry is among the most highly-regulated industries in the county. These days, skilled nursing facility providers face overwhelming regulatory and reimbursement challenges, while at the same time our nation’s aging population is increasing demand for their services and is straining their capacity. We have the depth and breadth of experience – and the relationships with key players like regulatory agencies and financial institutions – to guide our clients through these challenges to highly successful outcomes.
Our commitment to the industry is evidenced by our role in founding the Georgia Nursing Home Association, now known as the Georgia Health Care Association, which we have represented since 1953. We’re consistently ranked among the firms with the largest representation in the America Health Lawyers Association’s Long-Term Care, Senior Housing, In-Home Care, and Rehabilitation Practice Group and we’ve been recognized by Chambers USA and Best Lawyers in America for the excellence of our work. Our attorneys hold leadership positions in and are sought-after speakers for healthcare and long-term care focused industry organizations and symposiums.
