Walker Morris advises Key Capital Partners on Hallam Medical investment

Corporate lawyers at Walker Morris have advised private equity house Key Capital Partners on its £3.3m investment in Hallam Medical.

Based in Sheffield, Hallam is a temporary staffing business focused on supplying the NHS and private healthcare providers in the primary care markets.

Chief executive officer Scott Davies and clinical director Alex Munro founded Hallam in 2007. It appointed Jonathan Wright as a non-executive director and strategic adviser in 2012 and during the past 12 months has boosted its senior team with three new managers. The firm is looking to strengthen its team further with the appointment of a non-executive chairman shortly.

Corporate partner John Hamer led the team at Walker Morris with assistance from Dina Saleh, (corporate) and Ben Roden (finance).

KCP investment partner Mike Fell and director Philip Duquenoy managed the transaction. As part of the investment, Duquenoy will join Hallam’s board as a non-executive director.
