Foley invites you to join us on Thursday, August 15, 2013, for our latest Access to Capital Web conference regarding the antitrust risks associated with accessing capital through mergers and acquisitions.

As part of this session, we will discuss:

  • Mergers and other affiliations as a common way for hospitals and health systems to access capital, and an overview of trends in this area
  • The increasing scrutiny of hospital and health system mergers by regulators (FTC, principally, but also DOJ and state AGs)
  • An overview of recent enforcement activity: What kinds of transactions are generating enforcement actions? What are the common threads?
  • How to manage the antitrust review process
  • The importance of engaging counsel and the role of protective privileges
  • How to avoid the creation of deal-killing documents
  • Hart-Scott-Rodino filing — when it is necessary and how to manage the process
  • An assessment of the economic impact and early judgments on the likelihood of enforcement scrutiny
  • What does a challenge (a second request, litigation, and so forth) look like?
  • How to manage the cost and delays caused by regulatory review, and what to expect

  • David W. Simon, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
  • Alan D. Rutenberg, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
