EL SEGUNDO, CA (October 1, 2012)—Adishian Law Group served as exclusive sell-side counsel to Bay Area Pain Center in its sale to Prospira PainCare.
In one of the most significant M&A transactions for a Bay Area healthcare company this year, Prospira PainCare (www.prospirapc.com) announced the acquisition of Bay Area Pain & Wellness Center (“BAPWC”) (www.bapwc.com) as its initial entry into the massive California market.
The Adishian Law Group represented BAPWC as exclusive sell-side legal counsel throughout the transaction, from letter of intent through execution of deal documents. Prospira’s transaction team included three law firms — two ranked in the Top 60 in the United States by size — and three private equity firms. “Representing BAPWC in the sale of the enterprise to such a sophisticated buyer as Prospira was the type of challenging, complex and fun assignment that lies right in our wheelhouse,” states Chris Adishian, President of the Adishian Law Group. “Our team brought a wealth of transactional experience to the table, which leveled the playing field and helped the Company reach a “full value” deal that was fair all around.”
This confidence in the Adishian firm is testimony to the Principal’s judgment and the firm’s breadth and depth of knowledge in sell-side M&A transactions. Prior to quarterbacking corporate and transactional matters as a lawyer, Adishian spent time at Arthur Andersen and the West Coast’s leading investment banking firm, Montgomery Securities.
Says Adishian, “We appreciate the trust placed in us by BAPWC, and are grateful for the opportunity to apply our talents towards achieving a successful transaction for our client.”
Prospira PainCare, located in Mountain View, California was founded in August 2012. Prospira PainCare partners with world class interventional pain management physicians and rehabilitation specialists (www.prospirapc.com).

The Company addresses one of the most complex and challenging problems in society—chronic pain.
