International law firm DAC Beachcroft is pleased to be advising Visionable, the technology scale-up that specialises in healthcare, as it pursues an ambitious growth plan to become the leading provider of video collaboration technology to the healthcare sector.
Visionable is the first video collaboration platform designed especially for the advanced clinical needs of healthcare teams. It enables clinicians to monitor and consult with patients virtually, with all of the necessary records, scans, and pathology images at their fingertips. Already widely in use across the NHS in the UK, Visionable also has strong links to the US, where it is targeting healthcare organisations there.
DAC Beachcroft is advising Visionable on a number of commercial and corporate matters, including corporate investment work to help it secure further funding, developing and securing commercial relationships across the healthcare sector, and growth plans. Partner and Head of Technology Tim Ryan and associate Alistair Cooper are providing commercial technology advice, with partner Paul Ellaby leading on the corporate work.
Client relationship partner Tim Ryan said, “Visionable is a highly ambitious and exciting business that is championing new ways of working in healthcare. Their tech solution is helping to integrate care around patients, even where clinicians are working in different organisations and locations – which is a big issue for the NHS. We are delighted to be supporting them as they raise further funding, solidify their commercial relationships, and continue to develop their business and its innovative technology.”
Partner Hamza Drabu, a health sector specialist with expertise in commercial and regulatory issues in medtech, added, “Our market-leading health sector practice advises more than 300 independent and public sector healthcare clients in the UK, from internationally acclaimed hospitals to health tech start-ups. Visionable has a lot to offer many of the businesses we advise across the sector and we are well placed to help them identify and capitalise on these synergies.”
Gren Paull, Chief Operating Officer at Visionable, said, “DAC Beachcroft knows the healthcare sector inside and out. This knowledge and insight, paired with the firm’s extensive technology-focused offering, made them a natural fit for us. We are pleased to have them on our side as we help our clients pursue new ways of delivering technology-enabled care.”
