Veterinary Law


Mandelbaum Salsburg’s Veterinary Law Practice Group consists of a nationally experienced group of attorneys that counsels veterinarians on the many business and legal challenges involved in every aspect of practice transitions, including but not limited to, acquisitions and sales of practices, real estate acquisitions, leasing, management services organizations affiliating veterinary practices and other non-traditional joint operating structures, and private equity roll-ups. Our team of attorneys are also skilled in all aspects of veterinary practice financing arrangements.

Our services include assisting practice owners in forming efficient business entities, such as corporations, limited liability companies and professional limited liability companies.  We also prepare, review and negotiate business transaction documents such as offer letters, letters of intent, confidentiality agreements, and term sheets.

We also facilitate structuring and negotiating associate buy-ins; specialty, multi-specialty and general practice governance and management partnership agreements; and partner succession and withdrawals from veterinary practices.

Additionally, we provide counseling with employment law issues, including drafting practice personal policy handbooks; resolving employee/employer disputes; drafting and negotiating owner, associate, practice manager, and employee agreements; and drafting non-solicitation, confidentiality and other restrictive covenants. Our team of attorneys also advises and guides our veterinary clients on how to properly hire, terminate and manage employees.
