E. Brent Hill

Providers in the physician services, behavioral health, outpatient services, and home health sectors turn to Brent Hill for counsel in acquisitions, dispositions, and joint ventures of healthcare facilities throughout the United States. Over the past few years, Brent’s practice has increasingly concentrated on the representation of  hospital-based physician specialty practices in sales to investor-owned healthcare companies. To enhance the certainty of successful outcomes and protect client interests, Brent focuses on the determination and equitable allocation of risk between buyer and seller while navigating the regulatory issues that complicate healthcare transactions. His skills as a negotiator, a problem solver, and a closer are recognized in both long-term and new client relationships.

Despite providing counsel in what are often high-pressure, strategic transactions, Brent realizes that getting to know the CEOs, General Counsel, CFOs, and Development Officers with whom he works is a critical element in achieving client objectives. Company leaders appreciate his easy rapport and the way he gains a deep understanding of their priorities and concerns.

Brent has been recognized by Best Lawyers for his experience in corporate and healthcare law and by Chambers USA for his experience in healthcare law in Tennessee.
