Jason Chimon provides counsel to health care and general corporate clients in transactional and regulatory matters. He represents large public entities, mid-sized closely held companies, family-owned businesses and technology based startups in mergers and acquisitions and corporate compliance. He also counsels a wide variety of health care clients, including private equity firms investing in the health care sector and academic medical centers.
I focus on facilitating deals that enable clients to run their institution or business the way they want, protecting their intellectual property and keeping them compliant with the complex laws and regulations that occupy the health care space. I have worked on deals in both the health care and purely business settings, each of which brings its own challenges. I perform due diligence to ensure compliance and assess risk and make the project run smoothly by picking up the myriad issues that arise in the effort to close any deal.
I assist many technology-based startups, including spin-offs from academic research institutions, in their formation, organization and financing. I also draft and negotiate license agreements, collaboration agreements and a range of others to help them grow their businesses.
I work with academic and health care institutions to develop and support their technology transfer programs and these institutions’ various technology-driven transactions. I gained valuable hands-on experience during a secondment in-house at a prestigious academic medical center. During my time there, I worked directly with the institution’s technology transfer office and gained exposure to the inner workings of the office, discussing and strategizing on issues ranging from patentability to marketability of numerous technologies.
I also work with issues involving the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and assist institutions in both seeking and maintaining accreditation.
I see the rise of mobile health technologies and a shift in the way health care is provided. Technology companies will become ever more important players in this space, and hospitals and other institutions will seek new ways to integrate these technologies and partner with businesses in this space, such as through acquisition or investment.
