Health Care Private Equity

Among the most active markets in private equity, health care provides attractive investment opportunities for funds capable of navigating the industry’s complex regulatory landscape. To successfully structure and complete transactions and to maximize value, investors, lenders and health care companies require legal counsel who can help them address key health regulatory issues; who can communicate effectively with regulators and counsel on the other side of the table; and who can bring a deal to closure in a cost-effective, timely manner. MDM&C delivers on all those objectives.

We advise private equity clients and their portfolio companies on the full range of investment and financing activities, including growth investments and buy-and-build strategies, control, non-control and minority investments, buy-outs and recapitalizations, auction processes, strategic dispositions, exit strategies, bankruptcy, out-of-court restructurings and workouts.

Our lawyers also serve as general counsel for portfolio companies, advising on major transactions and day-to-day legal matters and providing efficiency and continuity for platform acquisitions, bolt-on transactions, operational and compliance issues, and sales.
