Members of the National Dental Law Group at Mandelbaum Barrett including William Barrett, Casey Gocel, Steven Sedereas, Melody Block, and Nicole Fryer worked with a client on the sale of a leading New England pediatric and orthodontic dentistry practice. Specifically, the seller was acquired by a national dental support organization (“DSO”) with a significant footprint throughout the east coast region. The transaction was unique in that it endured many fluid changes to the volatile DSO consolidation market. Further, the deal structure was distinctive for other reasons including (1) the fact that the sale took place in a state that does not recognize s-corporations, which led to nuanced tax considerations, and (2) the client received two forms of equity with varying economic rights at the parent company and the practice level. Our team engaged in extensive financial and legal diligence, and negotiated numerous transaction documents, including an asset purchase agreement, personal goodwill agreements, a challenging lease assignment, as well as equity and employment agreements that involved numerous human resource challenges. The National Dental Law Group at Mandelbaum regularly works with dentists on a local and national scale on these DSO transactions. We understand the decision to sell your practice is a life changing event, and we are here to guide you every step of the way. Read more about our dental law practice area here.
