Ashleigh VanLandingham

Diligent and dedicated to helping clients achieve their objectives, Ashleigh Hall VanLandingham is known for going the extra mile to ensure transactions reach successful closings. Ashleigh enjoys the intensity of transactional work and the challenge of bringing together all the elements of a deal. She assists healthcare providers, manufacturers and clients in other industries in strategic acquisitions and joint ventures as well as divestitures. A significant portion of Ashleigh's practice entails representing specialty physician practices in sales to strategic acquirors and private equity firms, advising healthcare providers in joint ventures with physicians, and assisting investor-owned health systems in strategic acquisitions and dispositions.

In addition to representing clients in transactional matters, Ashleigh provides counsel on securities-related matters, including public and private offerings of securities, SEC compliance, registered offerings of securities, periodic reporting requirements and broker-dealer registration requirements.
