Ken Menges Talks Health Care M&A with The Associated Press

For its widely published article “As drugmakers and hospitals cut costs and sharpen focus, health care deals lead global surge,” The Associated Press interviewed Akin Gump corporate partner and Dallas partner in charge Ken Menges on increasing mergers and acquisitions activity in the health care arena.

The article notes that 2014 has been the most active year for health care transactions in two decades. Menges concurred, noting “Health care has been a sleepy niche of M&A until recently, but the giant has been awakened.”
