Fladgate has advised private investment firm Nickleby Capital on its investment into virtual healthcare provider Medefer.
Corporate partner Ian Brent led the Fladgate team which included funds lawyers Ed Morgan and Adrian Mawlabaux.
Medefer says the growth funding will be used to invest in people and technology to service new contracts, enable new product development and ensure scalable growth. Medefer is a digital platform that connects GPs, consultants and patients. The platform has been used by 20,000 NHS patients, helping them receive faster care. Underpinned by its outpatient operating system and a nationwide ‘grid’ of contracted remote NHS consultants, Medefer manages the entire patient pathway from referral and triage to investigation, diagnosis and discharge. This is achieved without the need for physical outpatient appointments.
Marco Schiavo, managing partner of Nickleby Capital, said: “We had been impressed with the pro-active way in which Fladgate showed us investment opportunities and rewarded that with engaging them on this deal. The service and practical advice were both excellent.”
Corporate partner Ian Brent commented: “This deal is in a very hot sector in which we are advising on many deals. Medefer looks like an outstanding company and we hope that the investment is a great success for Nickleby.”
Growth capital is a core area of our offering and we advise on early stage investments in technology.
