Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Summit Partners LLP on its acquisition of a majority stake in DentalPro.
Summit Partners is a growth equity firm, founded in 1984, that has raised more than US$16 billion in capital and invested in more than 400 companies in the healthcare, technology and other growth sectors. Founded in 2010, DentalPro is a network of 30 Italian dental clinics located primarily in shopping malls.
"With the backing of Summit, DentalPro will continue its expansion in the Italian dental care sector," said London-based White & Case partner Ian Bagshaw, who led the team which advised on the deal. "Our cross-border and cross-practice team supported an acquisition which included a reinvestment by DentalPro's existing shareholder, VAM Investments, and its CEO and founder Michel Cohen."
The White & Case team which advised Summit Partners was led by partner Ian Bagshaw (London) and included partner Ferigo Foscari (Milan), associates Nicole Vella (London), James Pullen (London), Alessandro Seganfreddo (Milan), Rob Jones (London) and lawyer Lorenzo Colombi Manzi (Milan).
