Nimroz Ali is an attorney in Holland & Knight's Austin office. Mr. Ali's practice is primarily focused on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), joint ventures, recapitalizations, capital raises, divestitures and other strategic corporate transactions in the healthcare industry. He regularly counsels private equity clients, portfolio companies, family offices, joint ventures and founder physicians and dentists in the formation, acquisition, growth and sale of clinical practices in the physician practice management space.

In addition to his healthcare practice, Mr. Ali has worked on M&A deals in industries ranging from automotive, oil and gas, technology, and food and beverage. As such, Mr. Ali has garnered extensive industry and transactional knowledge to assist both buy-side and sell-side clients in navigating the challenges set forth by the ever-changing business landscape.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Ali exclusively represented the seventh largest bank in Texas, with more than $48 billion in assets, on most of its commercial real estate deals involving the Dallas and Nevada markets. This work quickly translated into Mr. Ali gaining experience and handling complex debt finance structures involving multiple institutional banks, bridge financing, lender participation agreements and convertible mezzanine debt structures.
