Matthew Agnew designs, implements, and closes health care deals through a creative, industry-focused problem-solving approach calculated to comply with the law while leaving room for business growth.
Matthew’s practice focuses on advising healthcare providers, investors, and industry groups on transactional and regulatory matters. Matthew helps healthcare companies buy, sell, or reorganize their businesses or enter into joint venture relationships with others in the industry.
