December 21, 2016

Axinn was antitrust counsel to McKesson Corporation, a leading global healthcare services and information technology company, in a transaction with Change Healthcare Holdings, Inc., a leading provider of software and analytics, network solutions and technology-enabled services, to create a new healthcare information technology company.
