Dennis Dykhuizen practices in the areas of health care, corporate law and commercial transactions. He has experience in assisting clients with income tax planning, business succession and acquisitions, joint ventures, estate planning, financing and contract negotiations. He has represented a wide range of physician groups and health care providers, including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, assisted living and long-term care facilities, independent diagnostic testing facilities, and numerous health care joint ventures. Dennis is also a frequent speaker on corporate and health care topics.
Dennis has a great deal of experience in representing nonprofit organizations, both within and outside of the health care arena. Further, he has assisted clients in obtaining various forms of financing for their businesses, including tax-exempt financing when appropriate.
Dennis provides opinions in the municipal bond arena and represents a large regional health system and delivers opinions related to their exempt financing. His involvement with said client and with similar representations has provided RLW with experience in public finance and tax-exempt municipal bonds. We believe RLW has a reputation as a leader in the local public finance area which was built on its ability to devise innovative strategies to operate in the dynamic environment of tax-exempt financing. RLW presently serves as counsel for borrowers as well as counsel to letter of credit banks and liquidity providers who are involved in transactions involving local and state government funding.
