Healthcare Transactions

Rx for Success

Blank Rome is an industry leader in healthcare transactional matters, including pre-operational start-up planning, capital formation, licensing, emerging company growth, strategic combinations and acquisitions, for nonprofit, privately held and public company clients.

Our attorneys represent all types of healthcare providers (institutional, facility-based and private practice) and suppliers (group and individual) in organizational, structural and commercial operative matters as well as the large-scale lending institutions that finance their operations—giving Blank Rome the global understanding and wide range of experience necessary to counsel clients in today’s healthcare industry. As well as representing healthcare operators and lenders, we serve as counsel to private equity funds and other sources of venture capital in connection with their investments in healthcare businesses.

In addition to providing regulatory compliance advice, our team includes experienced deal lawyers who can handle complex acquisitions, all with an eye toward regulatory issues that may affect the structure of a transaction involving regulated services and products. From the due diligence to the post-closing transition services, our experienced attorneys offer advice on specific issues relevant to the transaction, such as structuring the transaction for health care compliance; transferring licenses and certifications; communicating with payors and agents; addressing successor liability issues under both the Medicare and Medicaid programs; transferring personally identifiable information under existing consent documents; and resolving issues that might otherwise interfere with the orderly course of the transaction.

Our strong national and multi-national transactional practice includes the representation of:

  • institutional service providers, including national providers
  • physician practices
  • retail-based clinic providers at both the national and local level
  • health IT companies, including mHealth, EHR providers, PHR providers, data analytics companies, medical information publishers, and wellness and prevention companies
  • clinical research organizations
  • imaging providers at both the national and local level
  • national and international pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device manufacturers, wholesalers, suppliers and investors
  • managed care health plans and insurers
  • national and international GPO operators
  • healthcare lenders, private equity and venture capital firms

Committed to our clients, we take a practical and business-minded approach to solving complex legal issues. We are proactive in our thinking and view our client relationships as long-term partnerships with the ultimate goal of helping our clients achieve their business objectives.
