A considerable portion of Kevin’s practice revolves around assisting clients to strategically grow and manage their businesses through a variety of business transactions.  He regularly assists his clients in the acquisition and divestiture of physician practices, hospitals, long-term care facilities, pharmacies, and various ancillary lines of business.  Kevin drafts and negotiates a variety of agreements on behalf of his clients, including purchase and sale agreements, physician employment agreements, lease agreements, purchased services agreements, and professional services agreements, all with an eye toward minimizing risk and ensuring compliance with the complex laws and regulations affecting healthcare providers.

Kevin also represents clients in addressing their obligations under federal and state privacy, security, and breach notification laws, including HIPAA and HITECH.  He negotiates business associate agreements for his clients and drafts and updates policies and procedures to help guide his clients’ compliance efforts.  In the event of a breach or suspected breach of protected health information, Kevin helps his clients investigate the breach or suspected breach and navigate their reporting obligations and any interactions with federal or state enforcement agencies.

Kevin also represents clients in the adoption and use of health information technology in their practices.  His experience includes assisting clients with becoming meaningful users of certified electronic health records technology, responding to meaningful use audits, and helping clients participate in health information exchanges.

Kevin and his wife, Meredith, an early childhood special education teacher, live in Franklin, Tennessee.
