Urmas Kõrgesaar and Karin Ploom assisted Tartu Ülikooli Kliinikum in acquisition of majority shares of Põlva Haigla
Partner and senior associate Urmas Kõrgesaar with associate Karin Ploom provided legal counselling to Tartu Ülikooli Kliinikum SA upon acquisition of the majority shares of Põlva Haigla AS. This February is marking the end of a significant process of acquisition and restructuring started in 2017, in which we provided legal counselling to one of the largest hospitals in Estonia – Tartu Ülikooli Kliinikum.
As a result of this transaction, the foundation obtained 51% of the shares of Põlva Haigla AS, the other shareholder being the local government of Põlva. In 2017 Tartu Ülikooli Kliinikum with the legal support of our associates acquired also the majority share of Valga Haigla AS.
