Veterinary Industry

Overview People

OVERVIEW

Veterinarians face many obstacles as they operate their practices and work to grow in today’s economic environment. The challenges they face are magnified by a rapidly evolving marketplace that is seeing increased consolidation.  In addition, more and more veterinarians are being presented with opportunities to contract with Veterinary Support Organizations (VSOs) to provide non-clinical support to their practices, allowing the practitioner to primarily focus on providing quality care.

We are equipped to assist both individual and group practice veterinarians and VSOs in a broad range of matters, including:

  • Practice and VSO formation
  • Acquiring and selling veterinary practices
  • Partnering with financial sponsors and other financing issues
  • Contractual negotiation and preparation
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Cybersecurity
  • Real estate leasing, acquisitions and development projects
  • Employment issues
  • Federal and state taxation
  • Trademark, tradename and other intellectual property protection
  • Governmental investigations and enforcement actions
  • Commercial and professional liability litigation and mediation

Our team of attorneys listed below, including regulatory specialists, litigators and those with transactional, tax, intellectual property, and employment law expertise, bring their legal expertise, high financial acumen and a practical approach to deliver beneficial and effective solutions to veterinary professionals, practices and VSOs.  Our government relations practice, in turn, keeps our team of attorneys current on changes in the law that affect the veterinary industry, increasing our ability to effectively serve our clients.
