Practice Expansion Through Joint Ventures

Many physicians and practice groups are finding it advantageous to form joint ventures with hospitals and other non-physician organizations to expand their practice, decrease their overhead, and provide more comprehensive and cost-effective medical care to their patients. These joint ventures and expansions are typically complex, multifaceted transactions that must be carefully negotiated to minimize the risk of business disputes and regulatory non-compliance.
