The portfolio examines elements of a health care transaction along an anticipated timeline, starting with structuring considerations and preliminary negotiations and running through definitive agreements and closing (and post-closing) matters. It addresses common forms of equity, asset and non-profit membership interest-based transactions. The detailed analysis offered in this portfolio provides the practical guidance that parties and their attorneys, investors, compliance professionals, boards of directors, tax and accounting professionals need to consider to achieve their business objectives in successful health care transactions.
“Given the ongoing dramatic uptick in health care transactions, teaming with a firm of Ropes & Gray’s renown on this portfolio will provide Bloomberg Law subscribers valuable insights into one of the most active areas of health care law,” said Scott Falk, Vice President and General Manager, Health Care & Litigation, Bloomberg Law. “We are committed to continuing to build out the impressive array of tools and content that make Bloomberg Law a valuable resource for health care attorneys.”
“Health care is an opportunity-rich market. Private equity investment in the health care sector surged to $36.4 billion in 2016 and consolidation in the health care industry shows no sign of slowing down,” said Mr. Chesley, who has been recognized as one of the top 100 lawyers in California for providing health care M&A transaction counsel. “That being said, the health care industry is highly regulated and there is a need for parties on the buy- and sell-side to understand the fundamentals of deal complexities, regulatory issues, tax, and health law to mitigate inherent risks and avoid transactional pitfalls.”
Bloomberg Law portfolios are written by expert practitioners and feature deep-dive analysis and practice tools, such as checklists, sample client letters, forms and other supporting material, on a wide range of key legal topics.
