Nigel Jones

Non-Executive Director, Chair, Audit & Risk Committee

Versono Medical

Nigel’s appointment to the Board of Versono Medical was based on his extensive experience in the fields of healthcare and intellectual property, and his proven ability to apply that experience to help Galway-based medtech businesses to flourish. He has always been interested in health: studying biochemistry at university before becoming a lawyer; focussing on the health sector throughout his 32-year career at international business law firm Linklaters; and continuing to focus on health in his current portfolio of activities. While at Linklaters he created the firm’s healthcare sector, led it for over 20 years, and represented the likes of Shire (as it then was), Novartis and Johnson & Johnson on a range of complex commercial deals and patent disputes. He also worked with many smaller companies, including advising Galway-based Neuravi (now Cerenovus) on its successful exit. In addition to his non-executive Directorship at Versono Medical, Nigel has Chair/Trustee/Board-level adviser experience with a range of other healthcare sector organisations including the UK’s Royal College of Psychiatrists, the UK Dementia Research Institute, City Mental Health Alliance UK (of which he was also a co-founder), and the Medical College of St Bartholomew’s Hospital Trust.
