Andrew Bab and Kevin Rinker, co-chairs of the Healthcare & Life Sciences Group at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, are the editors of the recently-published ninth edition of the Practising Law Institute’s (PLI) Health Care Mergers and Acquisitions Answer Book 2022. The Answer Book, which combines analyses of recent healthcare transactions with an easy-to-read, question-and-answer format, is designed to help readers avoid potential pitfalls while working on transactions in this highly regulated sector. It covers deal making involving pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies, medical device companies, hospitals and other providers, health care technology businesses, health insurers and private equity and financial services firms investing in the healthcare sector, as well as due diligence and transaction documentation.
More information about the book is available on PLI’s site.
