Join Baker Donelson attorney Michael E. Clark as he presents with other professionals during the ABA Health Law Section's Physicians Legal Issues Virtual Conference.

In his panel, Mr. Clark and the other professionals will discuss the proliferation of management service organizations (MSOs) that involve private equity investors who seek to invest in and manage some aspects of physician practices. The panel will discuss some of the enforcement risks in these structures from federal government and private whistleblowers and how federal and state securities laws may impact these transactions. Finally, the presenters will examine issues in defending MSOs and the ethical requirements of attorneys who structure them.
