Wade Perry represents regional and local hospitals, physicians, long-term care facilities and mental health care facilities on a wide variety of issues, including regulatory compliance, corporate transactional, employment, HIPAA, increased profitability, ensuring payment, acquisitions and legislative matters.  He stays abreast of looming industry issues such as Medicaid expansion, Affordable Care Act and uncompensated care.

Wade views the work he does in the health care and real estate industries as a very interactive process where client input is crucial.  He is astute at understanding market demands and assisting clients in creating value in their industry, whether their need is transactional, regulatory or litigation based. He knows what it takes to get the job done and takes steps to ensure it is completed satisfactorily, even if it means lobbying and drafting legislation.

Wade assists his real estate clients with issues such as property acquisitions and divestures, title litigation, erroneous property descriptions, boundary disputes, liens validity and a multitude of other title-related matters.

It’s important to Wade that he and his clients establish mutual trust and communicate regularly so that their needs are met. The best part about being an attorney for Wade is the opportunity to help people solve problems — big and small — as quickly as possible while ensuring the legal bases are covered.
