Transactions Affinity Group 

The Transactions Affinity Group (AG) highlights the structural, corporate, securities, regulatory, tax, and accounting issues implicated in merger and acquisition transactions, all with an emphasis on features that are unique to deals in the health care industry. Despite the difficult economic climate caused by the collapse of the credit markets, health care transactions continue to close. In fact, many in the industry believe that the lack of credit may accelerate deal activity, as poorly capitalized, unprofitable institutions are forced to seek partners or buyers. The Transactions AG focuses on developments in deals prevalent in the health care industry, from hospital acquisitions and dispositions, to consolidations in the pharmaceutical industry, to joint ventures and other arrangements among the service providers, biotechnology/pharmaceutical companies, and payers. The AG covers case law developments highlighting decisions that will shape the way transactions are structured and consummated. It follows developments in financing and capitalizing for-profit and nonprofit providers, and highlights select bankruptcy law matters that impact health care transactions.

Further, the Transactions AG follows health care regulatory developments to position itself to predict transactional trends. The AG will follow developments within the Obama Administration as health care is reformed, with a view toward identifying those changes that will affect the structure of new industry deals, as well as the unwinding of existing transactions.
