Specsavers looks to Eversheds for legal advice on major investment in ophthalmology partnership
15 December 2016
Eversheds has advised Specsavers, the largest optometry provider to the NHS, on its significant investment in a partnership with independent ophthalmology provider, Newmedica to help improve eye health services for patients in the community.
The team was led by Eversheds’ James Trevis, client partner to Specsavers and comprised corporate specialists partner Nigel Cooke and associates Robert Worsfold and Christopher Archer.
James Trevis said: “This is another exciting and strategic undertaking for Specsavers and one we are pleased to have been part of by helping to ensure a successful completion.”
Stretch Kontelj, Group Legal Director at Specsavers said: “This development is significant for us, so it was particularly reassuring to have Eversheds on board – a firm that genuinely understands our business and the direction we’re heading.”
Specsavers named Eversheds as its preferred legal adviser for UK litigation, employment law, and commercial and corporate issues back in July this year.
