Overview

With a strong business background, Jon oversees transactional matters for healthcare clients.

Jon’s first interest was business, and his undergraduate studies focused on finance and business administration. However, his passion was for getting deals done, and wanting to drive business transactions to completion, he soon discovered that it was attorneys, who ensured that transactions closed.

Today, Jon focuses his practice on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions and general corporate matters for both startups and established companies. His experience includes private offerings of equity, debt and convertible debt instruments; strategic and private equity mergers, acquisitions and dispositions; and shareholder dispute workout transactions.

While Jon represents clients in a variety of industries, he has a special focus on the healthcare field, often representing doctors, physician groups and other providers in the negotiation of contracts and the buying and selling of medical practices. He enjoys the challenge of navigating the added layer of complexity healthcare regulatory requirements bring to transactions.

Jon is known as a reliable self-starter with a passion for business, as well as a quick study who readily understands the unique needs of clients in the healthcare industry. He aims to use his business knowledge to help clients manage their organizational needs, so that they can focus on their mission of patient care.
