Walker Morris advises Servelec on latest acquisition

Specialist lawyers from across Walker Morris have advised long-standing client Servelec Group on its acquisition of C:Vision, a provider of case management and information solutions to children and young people’s services.

Sheffield-headquartered technology group Servelec provides software to the healthcare, social care and education markets.

Servelec’s acquisition of C:Vision significantly strengthens its local government offering, giving customers the tools and support to provide coherent, joined up digital care to service users together through a range of interoperable solutions. Once integrated, social workers, youth support teams, finance teams and support staff across Servelec’s children’s and youth services customer base will have integrated access to the right information at the right time.

The Walker Morris team that worked on the acquisition included Richard Naish, Edward Ainscoe and Verity Mulkeen from the corporate group, with support from Lee Crook, Aaron Dixon and Juliet Gough in the commercial group.

Alan Stubbs, chief executive officer at Servelec, said: “At Servelec, everything we do is focused on providing people with better outcomes. The acquisition of C:Vision by Servelec ensures that, for children’s and youth services teams at local authorities, every service user will be supported and every support worker will have access to the right information at the right time, enabling even the most complex of cases to be managed safely.

“We look forward to welcoming the C:Vision team to Servelec and working closely together to integrate our solutions and enable the sharing of information across all care settings.”

Naish commented: “Walker Morris is delighted to have supported Servelec on its latest acquisition. Servelec is a long-standing client of the firm and we are pleased to have been able to advise them throughout a number of major milestones in the company’s history.”

“We have supported Servelec from the company’s IPO in 2013, to the subsequent acquisitions of Target eSolutions, Synergy, Corelogic and Aura Healthcare; through to its recommended cash offer and subsequent take private during 2017 and 2018. As such, we are delighted to be able to support Servelec on its latest acquisition which will enable the company to grow one of its core market groups.”
