Mergers, Acquisitions & Transactions

Healthcare reform continues to drive the need for physicians, hospitals and health systems to adjust to accommodate regulatory requirements and changes in reimbursement. Hancock Daniel advises healthcare providers throughout the country on the opportunities available to best accomplish clients’ goals. The range of options may include both horizontal and vertical strategic affiliations and collaborations, asset or business acquisitions or sales, joint ventures with contractual or equity-ownership features, mergers, practice affiliations and other complex or multi-layered transactions. Hancock Daniel helps clients to understand the benefits as well as the legal and business risks associated with any healthcare transaction and advises clients in identifying and consummating the best approach to fit with the client’s goals.
