Healthcare M&A, Joint Ventures and Other Transactions

A strategic approach to the bigger picture.

Healthcare organizations that seek to streamline operations through mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and other transactions need legal partners who are clearly focused on the bigger picture as well as the details.

Husch Blackwell provides experienced counsel across the life cycle of deals, from initial query to closing. We identify and resolve critical issues regarding due diligence, deal structure, valuation, financing and risk mitigation.

Our multidisciplinary team advises on the diverse issues that often arise during transactions, including buyout options, governance and control structures, operating agreements and payor contracts. We also develop and execute communication plans that build political and community support.

Our guidance to clients in the healthcare strategic transactions sector includes:

Healthcare private equity

Husch Blackwell has comprehensive knowledge of the design and structure of private equity-backed transactions, as well as portfolio company structures in the healthcare space. Our team structures, negotiates and implements bridge, mezzanine and other types of financing, and we structure portfolio operating entities to limit liability and accommodate growth. We also understand the tax repercussions and regulatory landscape involved in private equity transactions.

Provider alignment and integration

Our experienced attorneys work directly with providers to develop innovative ways to improve the efficiency and quality of medical care, including accountable care organizations (ACOs), independent practice associations (IPAs) and physician-hospital organizations (PHOs). We review, negotiate and structure service agreements that align services in ways that meet compliance requirements and growth objectives.
