Caleb Zobrist started out as a bankruptcy attorney where he successfully completed thousands of bankruptcy cases, both commercial and consumer. He also worked in mergers and acquisitions, acting as lead counsel for the buyer of a $1.5 million ambulatory surgery center. That’s just one way Zobrist has been able to look at the overall health of a physician’s practice and make precise improvements.
“I really enjoy helping clients make their businesses run efficiently,” he said. “That’s what we’re really good at. We clean it all up. It’s fun to rebuild the pieces of the practice to make it a smooth-operating thing.”
When Zobrist helped two physicians take the ambulatory surgical center, he took them from neophytes on the business side of the operation to successful, profitable operators over the course of months.
“They’re physicians,” he said. “They’re professional, they heal people, but it’s also a business. The biggest value they generate is the business itself and not just the billing they do.”
That kind of big-picture strategic thinking comes out in his down-time, too, as an avid board game player who aspires to one day create his own. Hopefully one that doesn’t have the power to tear families apart, like in a particularly cutthroat Monopoly session.
Zobrist earned his bachelor’s in finance and economics in 2005 from Utah State University and completed his J.D. in 2009 at the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV.
