Legal Support For Health Care Transactions

Our lawyers at Weiss Zarett Brofman Sonnenklar & Levy, P.C., in New Hyde Park, handle a broad range of complex corporate transactional matters. Our lawyers represent businesses in general, but they also handle complex transactional matters for the health care market. Corporate transactions for health care entities and health systems are exceptionally complicated due to compliance and regulatory issues.

If you are a decision maker for a nonprofit entity, a medical center or other types of health care organizations and need legal transactional support in the health care industry, our firm can assist.

Corporate Transactions In The Health Care Industry

As corporate transaction attorneys, we routinely advise our clients with respect to business strategies. Any corporate transaction has the potential to be complicated and nuanced. Our corporate lawyers provide counsel and advice for:

  • Mergers and acquisitions

  • Employee benefits and health plans
  • Management and employment agreements
  • Lease and services agreements

Our lawyers can draft documents, negotiate terms of agreements and provide transactional support for health care entities.

Regulatory Issues In Health Care Markets

Unlike general business transactions, health care transactions require additional care and concern. A myriad of regulatory, compliance and notice requirements have the potential to affect contracts with health plans and health care transactions. We structure transactions within the health care markets to comply with the numerous laws governing business relationships in the health care industry, including:

  • The Anti-Kickback Statute
  • The Stark Law
  • The prohibition against the corporate practice of medicine
  • The Civil Monetary Penalties Law

We are experienced with assisting health care providers and facilities with respect to a litany of  transactional matters, including but not limited to:

  • Certificate of Need (CON) and related Article 28 matters
  • Office-Based Surgery (OBS)
  • Managed Care Organizations (MCO)
  • MSO – Management Service Organizations (MSO)
  • MSA – Management Service Agreements (MSA)
  • IPA – Independent Practice Associations (IPS)

We can facilitate the sale or transfer of physician practices to hospitals and hospital systems. We can provide support for the formation, organization, purchase, sale and restructuring of health care entities, including professional corporations, business corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies.

We also provide legal counsel and advice for medical center, practice and health care entity management. Our lawyers are well-versed in regulatory and employment law matters, including the drafting of health care industry related employee handbooks and providing support to implement practice policies and procedures to comply with health and safety regulations.
