As the healthcare marketplace continues to evolve, our healthcare clients - needs surrounding the types of delivery models, transactions and structures required to compete in today's environment also change. The attorneys in the Barnes & Thornburg Healthcare Department have broad experience representing healthcare clients in an extensive array of healthcare-related business transactions. Our attorneys have advised healthcare clients on transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, consolidations, joint ventures, reorganizations, divestitures, spin-offs, and financing transactions.

Healthcare transactions frequently implicate a wide variety of legal issues that require specific legal advice. Our healthcare attorneys create multidisciplinary teams of Barnes & Thornburg attorneys with the experience to handle the numerous issues that arise during a transaction.

Our transactional healthcare clients include for-profit and nonprofit hospitals; physicians and physician groups; ancillary services providers; pharmacies; wholesale drug distributors; and other entrepreneurial healthcare clients. We routinely serve as transaction counsel for groups of physicians and other healthcare providers looking to consolidate practice group structures or to create joint venture ancillary services opportunities. We provide counsel and advice to entrepreneurial healthcare business clients seeking to create innovative and unique synergistic healthcare business models. For example, we have assisted clients in navigating the federal and state regulatory requirements and hurdles involved in creating and operating retail health clinics in pharmacies and healthcare clinics operating at employer sites.

Barnes & Thornburg healthcare attorneys are skilled at advising clients on new and unique structures for transactions to create business ventures and affiliations designed to properly align providers and integrate care so providers are able to offer affordable and economical care to patients.
