Newton's presentation, “From Gun Jumping to Smoking Guns-Potential Antitrust Issues in Transactions,” addressed antitrust-related issues and planning considerations before and during the negotiations of merger and acquisition transaction.
Washlick's presentation, “Formation and Operation of Strategic Health Care Alliances: Distilling Alignment from Mash,” discussed the formation of alliances and clinically integrated networks as a strategic alternative to traditional acquisitive transactions. John has served as the Chair of the AHLA program since its inception, which has grown in attendance each year and has emerged as a unique conference that brings together leading national healthcare attorneys, business advisors and investment bankers.
