Veterinary Practices

Allowing You to Focus on What Matters Most

Our attorneys are well versed at handling the unique needs of veterinary practices and leverage this knowledge to assist veterinarians in much the same way. Our firm provides a wide array of legal services in the veterinary industry. We have experience in startups (entity type, structure), acquisitions (corporate and private), and buy-ins (tax treatment, structure).

Operating on your behalf, Waldheger • Coyne can assist you with practice transitions, real estate purchases, leases, and employment contracts. Our goal is to remove the stress associated with legal transactions and allow you more time to focus on what matters most: growing your veterinary practice.
