Driving innovation and growth in the private healthcare market
At Blake Morgan, we draw on the knowledge and expertise from our nationally recognised leading public sector Healthcare team to provide insight and support to Independent Healthcare Specialists.
We deliver a full spectrum of legal services to private healthcare businesses from helping them to protect their intellectual property to the launch of new products and services to market, particularly in the growing field of Med Tech.
Our expert lawyers understand your business and act as an extension of your team. We work closely alongside private healthcare companies to help them grow and expand through investment and acquisition.
Main Areas Of Practice
Our experienced lawyers have a depth of knowledge of the health market to provide strategic and commercial advice offering pragmatic solutions for private healthcare businesses.
Strategic Commercial Support
We support clients to launch and sell their products and services, protecting their intellectual property assets, keeping data secure and negotiating terms of business. Our understanding of the UK healthcare market and its regulatory framework enables us to focus on the commercial needs of the business and its customers.
We work closely with innovators in the health sector to identify and protect new technology solutions including data management and medical devices. We support clients when licensing new apps and solutions or selling high value equipment and services into the NHS.
Our procurement experts advise on all matters relating to procurement including negotiating and finalising the often complex contracts which result from tender exercises.
Corporate Strategic advice
We work with management boards and key decision makers as well as entrepreneurs to help our clients drive forward their growth through funding and acquisitions. We provide advice on shareholder agreements, investments and disputes, and advise on acquisitions ranging from small GP partnerships through to large acquisitions.
We work with private healthcare providers, innovators, equipment suppliers, and service providers to help them grow and develop their business, and work with or supply to NHS bodies.
Our experts are specialists in the development and licensing of mobile applications. We recently helped launch an app which brings together information to enable GPs and those in primary care to more effectively signpost cancer patients to appropriate support and information. We developed user-friendly terms that protected confidential data, whilst enabling better access to information.
Our specialist team led negotiations for our client with private hospitals to enable patients to travel to the UK and EU for treatment to supplement existing capacity. Through our existing healthcare network we were able to facilitate introductions to potential partners, and then successfully negotiated the terms for a joint-working relationship to manage the end-to-end patient journey with the partner that the client selected following its own due diligence process.
Our expert corporate healthcare lawyers have acted for the InHealth Group for a number of years on various corporate acquisitions, working alongside their internal business team to enable the client to achieve its growth and development ambitions.
