A physician group should conduct extensive “reverse due diligence” before entering into a private equity (PE) partnership.

Important things to consider include:

  • the PE firm’s financial ability to close the transaction with the physician group;
  • the physicians’ comfort level with the PE firm’s experience, integrity, culture, vision, and fit as a partner for the group;
  • and the PE partner’s specific experience and track record investing in physician services – in terms of both working well with physicians and achieving substantial value enhancement.

You should speak directly with multiple physicians who have partnered with the investor in the past to assess all of these factors.
