We assist clients in all aspects of health care finance, serving as bond counsel and representing health care providers, banks, underwriters, issuers and indenture trustees. As part of one of the largest Public Finance practices in the nation, few firms can match our depth of knowledge and experience.
Access to capital remains necessary for health care organizations to thrive. Our experience as counsel on a wide range of projects and financing techniques—together with our knowledge of tax and securities law—enable us to advise clients on the best transaction structure and documentation for their needs.
After the transactions close, we frequently counsel clients regarding post-issuance compliance matters, including continuing disclosure requirements, arbitrage rebate calculations and review of physician and management contracts for compliance with applicable tax regulations. We also represent health care organizations subject to Internal Revenue Service audits and those in financial distress regarding compliance with financial covenants and the restructuring of their debt obligations.
Our national Health Care practice strengthens our Health Care Finance team. We understand the business of health care and the complex legal landscape that providers face in an industry undergoing reinvention and transformation.
