Hassan’s practice focuses on advising a broad range of clients across the health care industry—including health care systems, pharmacies, and private equity firms investing in health care companies—in complex industry transactions and compliance and regulatory matters.

Hassan leverages his prior experience as a “deal team” attorney representing private equity firms through various mergers and 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. He also served as an intern at the State Department’s White House Liaison Office during the Obama administration.

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.

Its introduction marks a fourth bipartisan effort in the House to enact the legislation, which would allow Medicare to directly reimburse pharmacists for delivering certain health care services to Medicare beneficiaries living in areas with limited access to primary medical care. Hindsight suggests that when introduced in the past, the Act may not have been ripe for consideration. But now, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and on the heels of successful initiatives like the West Virginia vaccine rollout, Congress may not wish to table discussion of the legislation any longer.
