Healthcare Lawyers for Medical, Dental, & Veterinary Transitions

Our healthcare lawyers are here to walk you through the entire process of buying, selling, or startup of dental practices, medical offices and veterinary hospitals from A-Z. This includes representing you in negotiating the best contract and deal that specifically suits you, and to fully represent your interest and advocate on your behalf. Since 2004, I have had the good fortune of representing physicians, dentists, and veterinarians.

If you are a dentist who is seeking to buy a dental practice, a physician who has cared for patients for many years and is now looking to sell your practice to a MSO or another private practitioner, or a veterinarian looking to buy into a veterinary practice, our healthcare lawyer can help you reach your goals while minimizing your risk and legal and financial liabilities. 

Experienced Healthcare Lawyers for Minimizing Your Personal & Practice’s Liabilities

After selling, buying, or starting-up your practice, the last thing you want is to find out that your rights have not been properly protected in a contract and you now will have to deal with unexpected legal headaches or worse yet find out that there were liabilities for which you remain responsible. The issues involved in selling or buying run-of-the-mill businesses are different than many issues that come up and should be dealt with in transactions for selling or buying healthcare practices with which average business lawyers are not familiar.

Not only there are specific statutes that regulate certain aspects of dental and medical practices that could affect your practice, but there is also increased scrutiny of healthcare practices and their compliance with these statutes. As a healthcare lawyer who is experienced in negotiating medical and dental transitions, I can assure you that there are also non-legal issues that could affect the purchase price and the total sum that you end up paying for buying a practice or end up receiving for selling your practice, and our skilled and savvy Dental Medical Practice Attorney can make the difference in your bottom-line as well as your legal and financial liabilities.

Healthcare Attorneys for Your Existing Practice

If you already own a practice, our healthcare lawyers can help you prepare for various business contingencies through shareholder agreements, operating agreements, and partnership agreements. We can also represent you in bringing in a new partner as a new shareholder of your professional corporation, a new member of your PLLC or LLC, or form a partnership for you. We can further assist in hiring new associates by preparing associate employment contracts or help with your office space by renewing and/or renegotiating your lease agreement. If you have not had your corporate documents (Bylaws, Operating Agreement, Resolutions, Minutes of Meeting, etc.) reviewed for more than a year, our healthcare lawyer in Maryland and DC can give your corporate documents and company’s structure a comprehensive review and see to it that your company’s documents are up to date and compliant with various laws. Finally, as an experienced litigator I can vigorously prosecute or defend your rights in court if you have a partnership dispute or commercial dispute with third parties.

Three Major Considerations in Dental and Medical Transitions

See our FAQ page for the complete article

There are a few considerations that you should take into account when selling or buying a dental or medical practice. Each practice and practitioner is different and the number of considerations and decisions vary from client to client. However, the parties involved in a practice transition should be prepared to deal with three (3) issues discussed below. Our dental and medical practice attorney are skillful lawyers who can help steer your contract and transaction in your favor.

1) The Structure of Transaction: Stock or Asset Purchase?

One of the first decisions that requires the parties’ agreement is whether the transaction will be… 

Whether you should start a new dental or medical office, purchase an existing practice, or work as an associate dentist or doctor is a personal choice that should keep your personal traits and values in mind.

If you are a dentist, physician, or a veterinarian and you have the entrepreneurial spirit that helps you thrive in business settings and dealing with the business aspects of running a practice, then there is little downside to owning your practice. Once you answer that threshold question, the next question is whether you should buy an existing practice or start a new practice of your own.

There are pros and cons to both approaches, and… 

Buying dental and medical practices offers many benefits to a potential buyer. The most important factor is having the financial predictability of buying an ongoing practice and knowing that immediately after the Closing you will have patients that will be waiting for you at your new office. This factor is more prominent in certain types of practices depending on whether your practice lends itself to patients that will be returning patients or is your practice heavily relies on other medical professionals referring patients.
