Jones Day’s Chicago Office Welcomes Health Care Partner Christopher Anderson

The global law firm Jones Day announces that Christopher (Chris) Anderson has joined the Firm’s Health Care Practice as a partner in its Chicago Office.

Mr. Anderson advises both for-profit and non-profit health care providers, private equity funds, and life science companies in transactional matters, which have included mergers, acquisitions, and affiliations of health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, large physician groups, and other providers. His experience includes the structuring of innovative arrangements between for-profit entities and nonprofit providers, leading to the preservation of community health care assets while creating value for investors.

Mr. Anderson has structured traditional and contractual joint ventures, pay-for-performance and gain sharing programs, and accountable care organizations, and has facilitated co-management agreements, efficiency projects, clinical integration, and other partnership opportunities for health care clients.

“Chris has an exceptional record of successful client engagement,” said James Dutro, who co-leads Jones Day’s Health Care Practice. “The strategic transactions he’s worked on have created outstanding value, synergies, and efficiencies for his clients, while also helping health care providers deliver services needed in their communities. He will be a great addition to our strong Jones Day Health Care team.”

In addition to his transactional experience, Mr. Anderson counsels clients on regulatory and compliance matters. He has redesigned medical staff organizations, revised staff bylaws, and represented hospitals in medical staff investigations, disciplinary actions, and internal hearings, and advised on reporting requirements related to these actions.

Added Tina Tabacchi, Partner-in-Charge of Jones Day’s Chicago Office, “As health care-related transactions continue to become more complex, our clients will require the advice and insight that a lawyer with Chris’s experience can provide. He is an especially good match for us and we look forward to his contributions.”

Mr. Anderson is on the Board of Directors of the Illinois Association of Health Care Attorneys and will serve as its vice president in 2018. A member of the state bar associations in Illinois and Wisconsin, he is a frequent speaker at industry events related to health care transactions and regulations, and has written a number of published articles on health care law and administration.
