Jed Roher

Jed has a robust practice, focusing on tax, health care and other corporate matters. He co-chairs the Emerging Companies Practice Group and is also a member of Godfrey & Kahn’s Women’s Leadership Forum.

A significant portion of Jed’s practice is devoted to the Health Care industry, including:

  • Guiding large-scale projects including hospital acquisitions, affiliations, member substitutions, joint ventures, and venture investments
  • Tax-exemption matters for large healthcare systems and health insurers
  • Providing outside general counsel to stand-alone/independent and private-equity backed dentists and other providers, health technology companies, and emerging companies and their investors, assisting with:
    • Equity financing
    • Mergers and acquisitions 
    • Formation 
    • Development 
    • Commercialization 
    • Exit strategies 
    • Ongoing corporate matters

The balance of Jed’s practice is focused on providing corporate counsel to privately-held emerging and established companies in and around the Madison area. Similar to his health care work, his work in this area includes advising on and implementing mergers and acquisitions, equity financing and investment, commercialization and development, and ongoing corporate matters.

Prior to pursuing his law degree, Jed toured the country for four years as a stage manager for musical theater shows and arts festivals.
