Medical Office Buildings

The medical office building market poses unique challenges to investors and developers. Transactions involving these facilities—ranging in complexity from a traditional single-doctor office to modern ambulatory care centers—demand the skillful balancing of many different interests, including those of the associated hospital, the municipality, the community, the physician and service provider tenants, the investors, the developer and the lender.

Our real estate practice blends technical knowledge of the legal issues implicit in medical office transactions with a deep appreciation of the business issues that most concern clients. We have been at the forefront of the industry for many years: in 2012, we advised the seller on the then-largest portfolio transaction in the U.S., and in 2013 we advised on the then-largest single asset development in the U.S. We continue to remain one of the leading law firms in the medical office building space; our lawyers regularly attend and speak at conferences that cover the opportunities and challenges facing the market. Our rare sensibility and history allow us to create unique, investor-friendly solutions that are practical and appropriate for each transaction.

We represent a wide variety of investors and developers in the acquisition, development, ownership and leasing of medical office buildings, as well as in loan transactions on behalf of the borrower. We have executed transactions and projects involving doctors’ offices, outpatient surgery centers, ambulatory care centers with MRI and CT services, geriatric care centers, on-demand diagnostic care centers, primary outpatient service centers and home health-care delivery systems.
