Kirkland & Ellis advised Vesey Street Capital Partners (VSCP), a private equity firm specializing in buyouts of lower middle-market healthcare services businesses, on the full sale of its portfolio company QualityMetric (QM). QM works with the world's leading healthcare and life sciences companies to measure and better understand outcomes through the creation, administration and review of general and patient-specific health surveys. VSCP acquired QM in August 2020 and quickly oversaw the full and complete separation of QM from a larger organization, recruited and built a top management team led by its Chief Executive Officer Gus Gardner and developed a 5-pillar strategic plan for growth. The sale was completed on August 18, 2023.
The Kirkland team was led by corporate partners Adam Wexner and Kevin Stocks and associates Zach Simon, Brandan Matthews and Becky Henz.
