UK & Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson advised the UK’s largest private fertility clinic, Care Fertility Group (CARE), on its acquisition of IVF treatment provider, Centre for Reproduction & Gynaecology Wales (CRGW).
The deal is the latest of CARE’s acquisitions in the medical sector and showcases the ongoing drive as a market leader to provide pioneering fertility and IVF care.
CARE is at the forefront of IVF science and clinical technology and offers highly advanced and effective procedures to support patients on their journey to become parents.
CRGW, an IVF treatment provider based in Wales, is dedicated to delivering highly technical and high scientific standards. Across its network of fertility clinics across the South West, CRGW prioritises placing patients before profit to enable affordable, cost-effective fertility treatment options.
The Browne Jacobson team was led by corporate finance partner Sandra Wong, assisted by corporate associates Kim Pons and Ruairi O’Grady as well as specialist lawyers across the firm including Helen Taylor (real estate) and Jennifer Jenkins (employment).
David Burford, Chief Executive of Care Fertility Group said: ‘It’s been a joy to work with CRGW in this exciting period to ensure that patients across the UK continue to receive top level fertility care. In strengthening our capacity and capabilities in Wales and the South West, we’re eager to reinforce the top quality care we provide across the UK regions as we look ahead to international horizons for the next stages of our growth strategy.
As ever, the fantastic support provided by the Browne Jacobson team helped to ensure an efficient and smooth closing of this important deal for us. The firm has been the trusted source of commercial legal advice for CARE for well over a decade now and our confidence in Browne Jacobson has once again paid off.”
On the deal, Sandra Wong at Browne Jacobson comments: ‘CARE’s acquisition of CRGW is a testament to their commitment to advancing IVF science and clinical technology. CARE is a longstanding, key client of ours, and we are proud to have played a role in yet another successful acquisition for them.”
