Healthcare Transactions

McGuireWoods’ healthcare lawyers represent some of the most well-known healthcare providers and investors in the country. The team’s institutional experience includes traditional healthcare market participants, such as for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals and health systems, as well as newer major players, including fully integrated payer-provider enterprises and private equity-backed platforms, in connection with transformative affiliations, mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. The cross-functional nature of our healthcare practice allows us to provide comprehensive representation on issues that play a role in any transaction, including antitrust, tax, securities, labor and employment, executive compensation, and related laws and regulations. Seamless integration among our departments remains the hallmark of our client service model — we believe interacting with McGuireWoods should be a frictionless and transparent experience. The firm combines leading-edge know-how and intelligence with unrivaled depth of experience under a unified, nationwide umbrella.

We proudly count among our clients remarkable healthcare providers ranging from ambulatory surgery centers and health systems to physician practices and private equity investors and lenders. Team lawyers have pioneered new and creative structures in acquiring, combining and recapitalizing medical practices, physician practice management companies and other healthcare providers. We advise clients in planning and implementing a range of joint ventures involving hospital-hospital and hospital-physician ventures, professional office buildings, diagnostic centers, renal dialysis facilities, managed care organizations and senior housing.

Team lawyers work closely with clients and their other advisers to organize and analyze relevant due diligence; identify business, operational and legal challenges; and develop solutions to mitigate those risks. McGuireWoods’ healthcare corporate, finance and securities lawyers help clients explore and implement financing arrangements; comply with and obtain appropriate clearance under tender offer, registration, proxy and other securities law requirements; identify and resolve other potential legal problems (employee benefits, environmental, liability exposure, real estate, and governmental and other consent or approval issues); and negotiate and draft related agreements, including technology licensing and other technology-sharing agreements and documentation.
