BOCA RATON, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — South Florida law firm – Beighley, Myrick, Udell + Lynne, P.A. (BMULaw) – a legal consultancy firm with a growing niche practice within the substance use disorder treatment provider space, recently served as lead counsel on behalf of national treatment provider, Banyan Treatment Center, in the acquisition of the well regarded Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches.
“The transaction was more complicated and complex than originally presented. Aside from the corporate acquisition, the existing licensing, insurance contracts, intellectual property, and real estate required us to dig deep into the well to get the deal closed quickly and smoothly,” Jeffrey Lynne, Chair of the firm’s Drug Treatment Industry Provider Group, says.
“Our unique expertise in this space of working with treatment and housing providers allows us to offer the full suite of services, from real estate and zoning, to corporate, regulatory compliance and marketing,” Lynne says.
Eric Oakes, COO, Banyan Treatment Center, said that they have used BMULaw to navigate the industry’s many complexities that impact Banyan’s ability to deliver services within this critical sector.
“Their array of services have provided solid guidance several times when operational questions have been posed,” he says.
For example, during the acquisition process, BMULaw provided the necessary contract skill and knowledge to be efficient and expeditious.
“Once the process of purchase/sale gets underway, everyone wants to ensure fairness, accuracy and rapid resolution,” Oakes says. “The firm’s cadre of professionals responded to meet those goals in ways firms not familiar with our industry could not. The firm has positioned itself well to provide concierge service to our industry, with multiple access points.”
Lynne has become recognized as the “go-to” attorney and consultant in this space because of his in-depth knowledge of industry practices that other firms may not have the background and experience to understand.
The firm just recently expanded its service offerings to include highly-regarded Sam Winikoff, Esq., whose practice focuses on revenue cycle management and health insurance litigation, ensuring clients are fairly reimbursed for the services they render.
“We continue to see health insurance companies violating fundamental norms for payment of health care services, simply because the health care provider is an addiction treatment program. This discrimination is illegal and immoral, particularly as we continue to navigate through the opioid epidemic gripping our country,” Winikoff says.
Lynne explains that the firm will continue to expand their services to meet all of their clients’ needs.
“We’re committed to helping those who help others sustain sobriety within the South Florida Recovery Community,” he says. “We’re also committed to working with our local, state and federal partners to make sure our clients and the communities where they exist are treated fairly and ethically.”
