HEALTHCARE TRANSACTIONS

Healthcare is nearly a $3 trillion business annually in the U.S. alone. Because it is so highly regulated and complex, the transactional side of healthcare requires a breadth and depth of knowledge and experience few firms can offer. A leading innovator in the business of healthcare, we have one of the country’s most active teams of attorneys in healthcare transactions. Because of the diversity of healthcare related transactions, attorneys from relevant areas throughout our full-service firm partner with our clients and each other to achieve the results you need and expect.
