Senior and assisted living facilities are experiencing challenges due to industry growth, regulatory pressure, and increased consumer demand. Drawing from M&R’s in-depth experience across multiple practice areas, our Health Care Department provides full-service representation to senior housing and assisted living facilities, helping providers thrive in the changing marketplace. We work with a full spectrum of stakeholders, including: developers, banks, not-for-profits, and facility owners.
Clients rely on M&R to provide advice on financing, regulatory compliance, labor issues, and general business matters. We have expertise in supporting complex financial transactions, including the purchase and sale of assisted living and senior housing businesses. We assist clients in deal structuring, performing due diligence and preparing and negotiating the necessary financing documentation. Our team has worked on sophisticated and high-stakes financing in the industry, and offers particular expertise with regard to the Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5) and Medicaid reimbursement matters.
The M&R team understands the various operational hurdles that must be cleared in order to successfully manage an assisted living or senior housing facility. We advise clients on day-to-day business issues, as well as key documentation such as management, admission, resident and operating agreements. Our team also counsels on a variety of employment law issues, ranging from employee compensation and benefits to discrimination complaints to non-competition agreements.
