Continued growth in health care M&A activity and other transactions means opportunity for investors and their portfolio companies. Katten attorneys provide the well-rounded, experienced counsel needed to help clients pursue their goals through various health care services transactions.

Efficiency in a Highly Regulated Space

Our multidisciplinary team handles sophisticated transactions with a focus on providing business solutions while navigating the ever-changing regulatory requirements. We leverage our deep experience with regulatory issues, various types of practice management and other ownership structures, and the larger private equity market to help our clients navigate all types of deal complexities quickly and efficiently.

We significantly add to our deal flow by representing numerous lenders in their financing of health care services leveraged buyouts (LBOs). Working regularly on all sides of transactions gives us a thorough understanding of market terms and structures, as well as a keen sense of best practices in the health care space.
