On October 20, 2017, healthcare IT lawyer Alisha R. Bloom will co-present a workshop at the Boston Bar Association titled “Integration and Spin-Off of Health Divisions – Legal Considerations for Operational M&A Solutions.” The workshop is co-sponsored by the BBA’s Health Law Section, Business Transactions Section, and Mergers and Acquisitions Committee.
Integrating and spinning off operating divisions through M&A presents a whole host of practical and operational challenges. The challenges are further complicated in the healthcare industry. For example, HIPAA and state laws governing privacy and security will need to be taken into consideration throughout the diligence, acquisition, and transition process; and can further complicate the extraction and sale of an integrated division. The speakers will discuss real world challenges they faced as both in-house and outside transaction counsel, and provide practical tips for addressing operational issues in healthcare M&A.
More information about the workshop is available on the BBA’s website.
