What do you focus on?

I represent health care providers on corporate transactions ranging from hospital deals to physician deals. I also advise these providers on regulatory matters with respect to federal and state requirements. My counsel for insurers includes corporate and regulatory advice specifically focused on state requirements.

What do you see on the horizon?

In health care, I see an era of rapid change with providers being required to reconfigure the way they provide care and to adapt to changing reimbursement methods. Providers who adapt will thrive and providers who don’t will see their income stagnate and struggle to meet their mission. I stand ready to help our clients adapt to such changes and to thrive.
