As one of the nation’s premier health care law firms and recently ranked a firm with one of the Top 10 Largest Real Estate Practice Groups in the country by Real Estate Law360, Polsinelli has developed a real estate practice with substantial experience advising health care clients in their real estate transactions. We understand our clients' business and provide them with straightforward, business-oriented legal advice that has practical application within their unique context. From hospital system acquisitions and sales to medical office building and other health care facility development, our attorneys understand how to build and manage medical properties such as hospitals, ambulatory care centers, cancer centers, urgent care clinics, medical office buildings, senior and assisted living centers, rehabilitation centers, laboratories, administration and other ancillary facilities.
As the health care market consolidates, our attorneys tackle complex, large-scale acquisitions of entire health care systems and their large portfolios of owned and leased properties. Our cross-discipline approach to these acquisitions brings our real estate attorneys together with corporate, health care, environmental, intellectual property and litigation attorneys to provide comprehensive, proactive advice to our clients.
When on the disposition side, our attorneys use their experience in handling some of the largest national hospital acquisitions to help health care organizations, which are selling assets, understand how to properly position their assets. We run our clients’ portfolios through the same rigorous due diligence process that a buyer’s counsel would to identify and resolve issues before they become deal breakers.
In a time of decreasing reimbursements, we provide clients with vehicles for monetizing assets to increase capital and can suggest creative joint venturing structures to provide vehicles for constructing new facilities when capital is constrained.
Our Health Care Real Estate practice has extensive experience in representing medical landlords and tenants in structuring leases, from ground leases and master leases, to subleases and time-share leases, for both on-campus and off-campus facilities. Our attorneys work in tandem with our Health Care practice to ensure such arrangements are compliant with the Stark Law, Anti-kickback Statute and other federal and state health care regulations. We also provide landlords with tools for developing compliance policies and procedures to manage leasing portfolios, including advice on negotiating sound property management and broker listing agreements for medical office buildings.
