  • Overview

    Biography

    Leslie Levinson is co-chair of the firm's Transactional Health Law Group, and a member of both the Health Law and Business Transaction Groups. He has represented private and public businesses throughout his more than 30-year career. Although Les maintains an active business law practice, he concentrates on the transactional, regulatory, and compliance representation of health care and life science clients, including home care and hospice companies, physician practices, hospitals, information technology and medical device companies, health care equipment providers, and health care investors and lenders. He brings a proactive approach to problem solving. He assists clients by anticipating issues and implementing creative and cost-effective strategies and solutions.

    Transactional

    Les has extensive experience in both health care and life science–related and non–health care industry transactions. He has completed more than 450 mergers and acquisitions and financing transactions. 

    Mergers and Acquisitions

    In his transactional practice, Les represents health care, life science, corporate and private equity clients, and other public and privately owned companies in a wide range of domestic and cross-border merger and acquisition transactions, including leveraged buyouts. He advises buyers and sellers on structuring transactions and negotiating acquisition and financing agreements.

    Venture Capital and Equity Financings

    Les counsels emerging, high-growth companies and entrepreneurs in capital raise transactions, including advice in connection with investment purchase agreements, convertible notes, charter documents, stockholder agreements, and operating agreements.

    General Corporate Matters

    Les also maintains an active corporate and business law practice, with an emphasis on transactional matters, including M&A for both public and private companies, securities matters, credit and finance transactions, restructurings and workouts, commercial and business agreements of all kinds, and business counseling. He regularly counsels boards and board committees, and he has served and continues to serve as corporate secretary to public and private companies.

    Regulatory

    Les provides counsel to health care providers on federal and state licensure change of control, Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse, compliance with the Stark law, false claims, licensure, government investigations, physician recruitment, reimbursement, privacy of medical information, compliance program development, self-disclosures, and general federal and state health care compliance counseling.

    Les is a frequent author, speaker, and commentator on health care and business matters as well as a contributor to Robinson+Cole’s health law blog, Health Law Diagnosis. Prior to joining the firm, he was a partner at Edwards Wildman, where he was the chair of the health care practice. Les serves on a number of outside advisory boards, including the National Advisory Board of Bioethics International.
