Overview

Our Clients

Katten is a trusted advisor to private equity investors and their portfolio companies in a broad range of health care services transactions. With one of the largest health care practices in the nation, we also represent providers of outpatient services, hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, hospice and nursing home chains, ambulatory surgical centers, and managed care entities. In addition, 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 health care services transactions gives us a thorough understanding of market terms and structures, as well as a keen sense of best practices in the space.

Our Services

Katten's multidisciplinary team handles sophisticated transactions amidst the ever-shifting health care regulatory landscape while helping clients focus on business solutions that accelerate growth. Our deep experience with complex health care regulatory issues, various types of practice management and other ownership structures, and the larger private equity market enables us to help clients navigate all types of deal complexities quickly and efficiently. While our attorneys have been broadly involved with many types of health care services deals, a significant amount of our work has been concentrated in the areas of anesthesia, animal health and veterinary, behavioral health and addiction, dental, dermatology, home health, hospice, imaging, pediatric, physical therapy and rehabilitation, physician practice management, and staffing services.

Our team regularly:

  • consults on potential investment targets to assess feasibility;
  • structures all aspects of private equity transactions, including LBOs, minority investments, public and private exit transactions, recapitalizations, restructurings, and carve-out deals;
  • addresses Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, licensure, tax exemption, charitable trust, antitrust and general compliance matters that arise in transactions; and
  • leverages Katten's complementary areas, such as tax, employee benefits, commercial finance, labor and employment, and intellectual property, as needed when structuring and closing deals in the health care services space.

We approach deals by first determining our clients' specific priorities and what matters most to them in the transaction, which allows us to bring a laser focus to key issues and be responsive to the particular needs of the situation. Our experience allows us to not only anticipate challenges but also to determine how best to resolve them, moving expeditiously to closing while protecting important interests.
