Michael Schnipper is a member of the Health Services practice group representing clients in all types of corporate transactions including mergers and acquisitions, private equity, venture capital and joint ventures.
What do you focus on?
I focus my practice on three main areas with an industry focus in health care and life sciences.
Mergers and Acquisition
I represent both buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of businesses in a wide range of industries including health services, life sciences, food and beverage and technology. Most recently, I worked with a diverse team of Nixon Peabody attorneys in the representation of a Connecticut hospital in its acquisition of a Rhode Island hospital system.
I work with many New York-based hospitals and private practices in their integration. These transactions involve complex legal and business issues as the parties attempt to adapt to changes in health care regulations and economics.
I handle all phases of a private equity firm’s investment in a portfolio company including add-on acquisitions and exit transactions. Most recently, my focus has honed in on investments in health care management companies, which requires a deep understanding of the health care laws and regulations that place restrictions on certain PE investments.
What do you see on the horizon?
The ever changing regulatory landscape for health care and life sciences companies is leading to even further consolidation. I am monitoring these changes and constantly looking at creative and effective ways to address clients’ needs and business goals.
