I counsel private and public companies and healthcare not-for-profits on the full range of corporate matters. I also represent a variety of private equity and venture funds in connection with their investments. In addition, I represent corporate and health care clients on antitrust matters.
The economy is growing and deal flow remains extremely high. Even with the change in administrations, the antitrust area will remain active with continued vigorous U.S. and international enforcement.
