Whether for a merger with an existing organization or the founding of a start-up, the legal due diligence needed for financing in healthcare is substantially more complex than for financing in most other business sectors because the industry is so highly regulated. The Innovators Law Firm can help navigate this process for either the organization being merged or acquired or the private equity (PE) or venture capital (VC) seeking to invest in the business.
As with any substantial capital outlay, lenders, venture capitalists or private equity companies want to minimize their exposure, and often insist on all potential risks being addressed. By the same token, any healthcare company seeking financing needs expertise in managing due diligence. During the due diligence process, we examine the new or to-to-be-acquired entity’s structure, compliance with healthcare regulations, any contractual arrangements, and past funding. We address any legal issues, find solutions to complete the due diligence process, and communicate effectively with the financing organization’s legal counsel or executives regarding any questions and concerns. Our due diligence checklist includes the following:
As an expert in healthcare regulatory compliance, we know what venture capital, private equity, or investment banking firms seek in funding potential or expanding healthcare businesses. On the reverse, we also work with venture capital and private equity firms to provide due diligence for their portfolio companies. Whether you are buying a healthcare company, selling one, or setting one up, our law firm makes sure your transaction is completed with each party’s goals in mind.
