Governmental Transaction Expertise
Hooper, Lundy & Bookman’s public agency practice recognizes that county governments, public healthcare districts, and public university medical centers nationwide face distinct health care legal and regulatory challenges.
Because of our long-standing representation of a significant number of hospital districts, public university hospitals and county health and mental health departments, we have extensive experience in the legal issues affecting local public agencies on such matters as governmental immunity and personal liability, open meeting requirements, conflict of interest laws, public elections, state and private contracting, public records, state investment and expenditure restrictions and bond financing. In addition, we have handled a substantial number of real estate and business transactions for public entities, integrating our health care and corporate law expertise with our experience in representing government entities. Projects have included leases and sales of district hospitals, development of assisted living facilities, public bond refinancing, medical office building development and health plan formation.
