Stephenson Harwood advises NMC Health Plc on first UK acquisition


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has advised UAE-based private healthcare provider NMC Health Plc on its acquisition of Aspen Healthcare, a UK-based healthcare company. The enterprise value was £10 million.

London-listed NMC Health acquired Aspen Healthcare from Tenet Healthcare Corporation. The deal marks the company's first acquisition of a UK-based company, and the latest development in the company's rapid expansion, following a series of acquisitions in recent years. It now operates over 130 medical facilities in 14 countries. Aspen, which offers a large range of specialities, particularly in Orthopedics and Oncology, operates a network of four hospitals and five other medical facilities across the UK, including the Parkside hospital in Wimbledon. 

The Stephenson Harwood team was led by corporate partners Andrew McLean, Andrew Edge and Karima Hudson, senior associate Jonathan Bridcut and associate Kate Hewitson.

Stephenson Harwood has a dedicated cross practice healthcare team, drawing experience from members across its network of offices in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The team was named 'Legal Advisor of the Year' in the Private category at the HealthInvestor Awards 2017, in recognition of its work advising clients across the public and private sectors.
