New York and New Jersey Health Care Mergers & Acquisitions Lawyers
Guidance for an industry in a transformative stage
Health Care in our country is going through a transformation — and so is the business of taking care of patients. Solo practitioners — the “old country doctor” — are fading away and health care “super groups” are taking center stage. Insurance companies are merging, pharmacies are acquiring smaller chains, and more practitioners are involved in outpatient centers than ever before. At Buttaci Leardi & Werner, LLC, we have experience creating new and exciting entities and transforming health care practices and businesses through merger and acquisition. Central to this all is the proper planning, integration, risk management and legal support we can provide beyond merely sharing an office.
Changing structures of ownership and changing the marketplace
Our attorneys bring deep experience and knowledge in the unique business of health care industry transaction. With regulations that exceed nearly every other industry in the United States, the legal, regulatory, reimbursement and risk allocation factors pertaining to health care transactions require counsel that understands and maintains the sophistication to succeed. As health care M&A lawyers, we offer targeted due diligence investigations for corporate and personal compliance relating to anti-kickback, Stark, FDA, reimbursement, and other state and federal laws and regulations.
The health care industry is moving toward consolidation, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Department of Justice (DOJ) and Food & Drug Administration (FDA) are paying attention. Incentives under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) have encouraged Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other organizations to change.
