BOSTON, July 19, 2017: Morgan Lewis represented Vets First Choice, a leading provider of technology enabled healthcare services for veterinary medicine, in its $223 million strategic investment to accelerate growth, launch new innovative services, and begin a global expansion effort into Europe and Asia.
