Horton Quoted in Ambulatory M&A Advisor
July 9, 2015

HortonWilliam W. Horton, a partner in the firm's Business & Commercial Transactions Practice Group and member of the Healthcare team in the Birmingham office, was quoted in an article published by The Ambulatory M&A Advisor on June 1, 2015. The article titled, “Deal Counsel and Joint Representation in Ambulatory Care Transactions”, discusses the practice of having one lawyer represent both parties in an ambulatory care transaction and the ethical and practical problems that often arise. Mr. Horton states, “If you’ve got a single lawyer ‘representing the deal though,’ how disputes are resolved becomes a major problem. Those decisions will always cut in favor of one party or another. It’s very difficult to adequately advise both parties on what happens when their interests are no longer aligned.” To read the article in its entirety, please click here.
