Virgil Ochoa


Medical professionals have close emotional attachments to the practices they’ve built, but they all have one thing in common when they want to grow or sell their business—they want to partner with someone whom they can trust to help guide them on an often complicated path in attaining their goals.

For dentists, endodontists, oral surgeons, and other professionals, including those operating med spas, veterinarians, and managed service organizations, Virgil Ochoa leverages decades of experience and a combination of his knowledge of corporate practice of medicine regulations and extensive buy-sell experience to ensure deals go smoothly so those new relationships will prosper.

Whether a client is looking to buy or sell their practice, or transition into an affiliation in a managed services model, taking that next step into a new business entity can be daunting even if it makes good financial sense. Virgil takes the time to build personal relationships with his clients as he counsels professionals in every aspect of a transaction by clarifying the risks and pains of monetizing their practices so they can focus on their clinical expertise.

Virgil represents service organizations, not only in affiliating with professionals, but also in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and corporate finance matters across all their legal and business needs.

Virgil also has deep knowledge as an accomplished international trade lawyer who has advised clients on export controls, tariffs, licensing, and related issues. His experience extends across a wide range of consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and durable goods and the government fines, fees, and penalties imposed for non-compliance.

I take great pleasure and satisfaction from bringing everyone to the table and creating new relationships through which they will all benefit.
