08 November 2017

Top 100 law firm Birketts has advised the owners of Veterinary Pathology Group, a network of responsive labs and experienced practitioners across the UK and Ireland with a £10m annual turnover, on its sale to Synlab for an undisclosed sum.

SYNLAB Group is an international medical diagnostics provider with laboratory services for human and veterinary medicine as well as environmental analysis.

Birketts advised on all legal matters with Adrian Seagers leading the team. Assistance on the deal was provided by Corinne Spencer, Nick Burt and John Kahn.

Mark Diamond, co-founder of VPG, said: “Birketts has an unrivalled reputation for providing clear legal advice. The guidance and support that we received from the team throughout the sale was of the highest calibre. We felt that we were in safe hands right from the off.”

Adrian Seagers, Head of Birketts' Corporate Services division, said: “It has been a pleasure securing the exit that Mark and the team were looking to achieve. They have built a fantastic UK-wide partnership and we look forward to seeing the practice, under Synlab’s ownership, continue to go from strength to strength.”
