Hassan’s practice focuses on advising a broad range of clients—including health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, rebate aggregators, providers, and private equity firms—in contract negotiations, complex industry transactions, and compliance and regulatory matters. He regularly counsels plans, PBMs, rebate aggregators, and providers on regulatory, operational and contracting matters; and often advises clients on compliance with the anti-kickback statute and corporate practice of medicine prohibitions.
Hassan leverages his prior experience representing private equity firms in various acquisitions, restructurings, and growth equity transactions to provide reasoned and pragmatic solutions to a wide range of client needs.
Prior to joining Mintz, Hassan was an associate with a large, international law firm in New York City, and then later, with a boutique law firm in Los Angeles.
Hassan received his J.D. from Duke Law School, where he was an editor of the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy. He received his B.S.Ed and MPH from Baylor University, with a concentration in health education.
