McDermott is home to a leading healthcare practice skilled at advising clients on their merger and acquisition (M&A) strategies and transactional needs. We have completed more than 400 major hospital and health system transactions in the past five years. Our dedicated health care M&A teams have a complete understanding of the federal and state regulatory landscape, allowing us to provide innovative, cost-effective solutions to complex transactional and implementation challenges.
Our deep regulatory bench and broad transactional backgrounds give us insights into the regulatory, reimbursement and operational issues that, in less experienced hands, can derail transactions and destroy value. We have counseled hospitals and health systems across the United States. As a result, we can quickly identify the local regulatory matters that, in conjunction with federal laws and regulations, will influence the outcome of a transaction.
To provide optimum efficiency and the highest-quality deal counsel, our health M&A lawyers are organized along functional skill areas. Our health lawyers blend technical specialties with transactional and controversy-contextual knowledge (e.g., Medicare reimbursement, the Stark Law) and have significant daily experience advising on these matters at operational and strategic levels. This approach allows our transaction leaders to bring highly focused skills and broad industry experience to bear on all elements of a transaction.
The seamless integration of our transactional and health regulatory knowledge avoids redundancy and delay, ensuring that transactions are executed in a timely, cost-effective manner and offering the most creative solutions available in the marketplace.
