The well-chronicled consolidation of the health care sector has fueled a robust market for corporate transactions and commercial arrangements of every stripe. The ongoing demand for business combinations that can deliver on both quality of care and long-term cost reduction has led to a proliferation of deals that cross traditional categories in search of more efficient, value-based service models. In a political climate fraught with uncertainty, these deals carry with them a host of legal and regulatory complexities that must be deftly navigated by professionals steeped in these issues.
Our health care transactions team helps companies understand these tectonic shifts, anticipate market trends and plan for complexities that result. We represent players spanning the entire health care stakeholder spectrum: providers, payers, pharma manufacturers, and telehealth and other technology companies, as well as the private equity and venture capital firms that invest in them. Our clients are under increasing pressure to expand their networks, their geographic footprints, their service capabilities and, ultimately, their brands. They rely on us to facilitate deals that help create new ways of delivering—and paying for—health care.
A multidimensional approach
Our health care practice is uniquely multidisciplinary, bringing a wide range of legal, policy, advocacy and strategic advisory skills to our clients’ transactions. Having represented six of the top ten California-based health care systems, we are thoroughly immersed in the myriad technologies, payment models and regulatory concerns that inevitably accompany each deal.
We are especially formidable on the regulatory and policy sides, with strong presence in the power centers of Washington, D.C., New York, Illinois, and Northern and Southern California. Many of our attorneys are themselves former regulators, uniquely qualified to interpret existing laws and advocate for new ones.
