Ashley has extensive experience in general corporate, governance, regulatory and contract matters, including entity formation and maintenance and corporate formalities. She manages all aspects of transactions, including due diligence, negotiations, regulatory filings and the employment and real estate implications of her clients' transactions. In the regulatory sphere, she is familiar with the many federal and state laws that govern health care providers, including the Stark Law and the Certificate of Public Need (COPN).
