Buying And Selling Physician Practices
During the purchase or sale of a medical practice or physician group, there are numerous hurdles that must be overcome to ensure that the parties to the transaction comply with all state and federal regulations. These regulations are especially complex when the buyer is a physician, a physician-owned entity, a hospital or another health care entity that is subject to the Stark Law and other related acts and ordinances.
I am a Texas health care business lawyer at The Law Offices of Alejandro Mora, PLLC, who provides individuals and businesses involved in the sale and purchase of physician practices with the diligent representation and knowledgeable advice that they need to successfully avoid the pitfalls that these transactions present. My name is Alejandro Mora, and I have assisted a wide range of purchasers and sellers in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston and across the nation in completing their transactions as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible.
Comprehensive Counsel For Buyers And Sellers
My focus on health care law allows me to stay at the forefront of all applicable strategies for maintaining regulatory compliance and keeping transactions moving forward.
I am well versed in complicated transactional matters related to:
- Valuation: One of the most difficult aspects of a transaction is finding a fair price point for the practice being sold. I use my extensive understanding of the market for physician practices and medical groups to ensure that my clients pay or receive fair market value during the transaction, which is a critical component of Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute compliance.
- Compliance: I guide clients through the entire due diligence process, negotiate employment agreements for my physician clients and their staff members, and address all compliance-related issues related to the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, and other applicable laws and regulations.
- Efficiency: Without an attorney who is knowledgeable in health care transactions, the sale or purchase of a physician group can drag on for much longer than either party intends. I prevent negotiations from slowing to a crawl, and I work tirelessly to form a complete sale or purchase agreement in as efficient a manner as possible.
