Bloomberg BNA Health Law Reporter

Gary W. Herschman and Paul A. Gomez, Members of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Newark and Los Angeles offices, respectively, were quoted in a Bloomberg BNA Health Law Reporter special report titled “Health-Care Transactions Update: August,” by Mary Anne Pazanowski. 

Following is an excerpt:

Health-care transactions activity is expected to pick up in the fourth quarter following a bit of a slow down over the summer months, attorneys who advise clients on deals told Bloomberg BNA.

It wasn't a surprise that the summer months had a lower volume of closed deals, as shown in the August list, Gary W. Herschman, of Epstein Becker Green in Newark, N.J., said. Those months traditionally are slower, Paul A. Gomez, of Epstein Becker Green in Los Angeles said.

Both advisers expect transactional activity to be more robust in October, November and December, because of a large number of deals that are in the “pipeline” and targeted to close before year-end.
