This month's breakfast briefing covers mergers, acquisitions, and consolidations of physician and other health care practices and companies, focusing primarily on the labor and employment aspects of such transactions. Using a real-life acquisition scenario, a panel of Epstein Becker Green attorneys from several practice areas will discuss the key labor and employment law issues and pitfalls that executives and human resource professionals will encounter — from both the seller's and purchaser's sides of the deal. The attorneys will also address antitrust, corporate, and real estate issues.

Specifically, this interactive presentation will cover:

  • Practical tips for the purchaser
  • Practical tips for the seller
  • Evaluating and negotiating the purchase and sale agreement
  • Due diligence checklists
  • Employee relations issues, such as vacations, benefits, stay-on bonuses, personnel files, employees out on leave, union issues, and Forms I-9
  • Downsizing, including potential WARN Act, discrimination, and severance concerns
  • Real estate aspects of the deal for both the landlord/owner and tenant, where the acquired medical practice owns an office building, surgery center building, etc.
  • Restrictive covenants and confidentiality agreements
  • Key issues for physicians and health care practitioners transferring practices, including notifications to patients, transfer of patient records, etc.

Registration Is Complimentary
