His deep understanding of the healthcare industry and extensive experience with the business and regulatory environment affecting healthcare borrowers allows him to provide his clients with penetrating insights and industry-specific knowledge and experience that maximize the chances of deal success in this highly regulated space.

Having represented numerous lenders in secured healthcare financing transactions, Doug is able to provide a unique level of service to lenders in this area. The needs of healthcare industry borrowers are complex, and Doug has helped lenders close deals with providers in nearly every space in the healthcare field, including skilled nursing, acute care hospital/health system, home health, inpatient rehab, diagnostic imaging, and long-term acute care, and with pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of medical devices.

Doug also has extensive experience representing lenders in non-healthcare asset-based loan transactions and experience representing lenders in commercial loan portfolio sales and purchases and debtor-in-possession and exit financing deals. His extensive experience includes structuring, negotiating, closing and restructuring asset-based and other secured loan transactions.
