Legal Insights and Perspectives for the Healthcare Industry

We had a successful Fast Break on HealthTech Startups last month. The program, led by Morgan Lewis corporate partners Andy Ray (@AMRayEsq) and Jeff Bodle (@jeffbodle), explored a lot of the things that might affect the relationship between capital investors, including corporate venture capital and startup entrepreneurs. We discussed a bit about the background of how a startup begins and explored the process through which a successful startup begins to obtain capital, especially when integrating vertically with potential buyers of their products (not just their business). This Fast Break also touched on some of the common healthcare regulatory issues we have to contend with on both the startup and the corporate side during diligence. If you’d like to take a listen, here is a recording of the program.

In case you’ve missed it, we’ve been running the Morgan Lewis Fast Break webinar series for more than two years now. The series examines a variety of different health law topics, from the old standards—Stark Law and Corporate Integrity Agreements, etc.—to topics on cutting-edge technology and legal developments such as Blockchain or our recent session on GDPR compliance. What we love about this series is that we get to highlight topics that may not be top of mind for many healthcare companies, helping listeners identify problems before they arise in their own practices or organizations. And as we explore these areas, we get to learn a lot as well.
