She represents inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation businesses, ambulatory surgery centers, diagnostic imaging facilities, academic medical centers and other healthcare companies in matters involving complex transactional and regulatory issues. She has successfully guided clients through mergers and acquisitions, syndications, joint ventures, internal restructurings and financing transactions.

In addition to her healthcare work, Dorothy maintains a general corporate and securities practice and is heavily involved in economic development matters, representing businesses locating in Alabama in connection with the negotiation of incentives and the implementation of economic development projects.
