At Spencer Fane, Ayesha works closely with physicians and other health care professionals, along with various health care and closely held businesses, in a wide range of corporate, transactional, regulatory, and licensure matters. Ayesha serves as outside counsel for her clients to help them reach their goals in physician employment, recruitment, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures, as well as providing solutions when dealing with professional board complaints, reimbursement issues, and corporate compliance.
