On November 7, Jayne Juvan provided commentary to Law360 in “How Attys Can Capitalize on PE’s Health Care Craze.” The article focuses on the increasing activity of private equity firms in acquiring healthcare companies, even in light of a potential recession.
“The state of private equity investing in health care is strong,” Jayne commented. “Overall, total transaction volume has continued to increase and is at the highest levels we’ve seen, and many of the deals have been led by private equity investors. We expect this activity to continue next year and possibly even in 2021.”
Jayne also addressed compliance, saying, “We recommend that our clients conduct a full compliance audit of target companies pre-closing,” adding that Tucker Ellis partners with private equity firm clients “to ensure that they understand the regulations that apply to their companies. That way, they mitigate their risk of having a compliance incident that might hamper their exit.”
In closing, Jayne commented, “Health care investments present a powerful opportunity for those with industry expertise. There are plenty of firms without this expertise that have gone into health care only to realize that they didn’t fully understand the reimbursement landscape or found kickbacks or claims issues post-closing and wished they would have just stuck to their knitting.”
