Providers and other health care industry organizations seeking to create and realize value through strategic transactions turn to Laurajane Kastner. She is a health care M&A attorney who excels at completing complex deals efficiently while explaining complicated concepts in an easy-to-understand way and offering practical advice. With two decades of corporate law experience, with the last 12 years focused on health care-related transactions, Laurajane regularly advises on asset and equity acquisitions and sale divestitures, corporate governance issues (formation, operating agreements, redemptions, business separations, and settlements), and general contract matters (supply, management, and procurement agreements).
Laurajane’s clients include institutional health care providers, ambulatory surgery centers, large physician practices, and both established and emerging entities operating both nationally and regionally in health and life science related fields. She advises them on everything from structuring and corporate governance to executing complex corporate transactions.
Clients rely on Laurajane’s deal counseling, her oversight of due diligence and client disclosures, and her drafting of definitive sale and purchase agreements that control both acquisitions and divestitures of equity and assets. Laurajane drafts deal-specific or general governance documents that meet her clients’ goals, protects them as they navigate their day-to-day business operations, and, if applicable, looks to exit strategies or maximization of business value.
With the rise in private equity transactions, Laurajane helps target entities negotiate favorable terms and structures for the deal itself, as well as continue their post-closing operation under private equity ownership.
Corporate boards value Laurajane’s advice on corporate formality and governance. She advises on and implements formation strategies, and drafts operating and shareholder agreements to assist clients in meeting corporate and governance mechanisms—whether a client is a small family owned business, a large established client, or a joint venture.
