  • Creating legal structures to facilitate strategic objectives relating to governance and operational efficiencies, including multiparty vehicles like ACOs, PHOs, IPAs, and population health management organizations
  • Assessing regulatory and business risks inherent in proposed transactions, such as acquisitions and multijurisdictional transactions, and devising strategies to reduce, share, or eliminate risk
  • Assisting with the development and implementation of business, litigation, and regulatory strategies to meet corporate objectives, and devising project management plans to keep initiatives on target
