A number of sales and acquisitions for a healthcare client who already has a well-established portfolio, with a combined value of over £1.5 million.
Acting on the sale of the entire issued share capital of a care home business in Bognor Regis with a value of £1.7 million.
Assisting on the £2million acquisition of a large portfolio of retirement properties for a Retirement Housing Association client.
We recently used this firm in the sale of one of our pharmacies in Birmingham. Being the first disposal for our company in over 10 years we wanted to work with someone who had vast experience in our field. We found them to be very comfortable to work with and they were always on the end of the phone for any matter. An efficient service was provided in all aspects of work from preparing the asset purchase agreements to producing a lease. I would have no hesitations in recommending them to anyone dealing with a pharmacy sale or purchase.
SPL Corporation Limited
We have trusted this firm with our legal matters for a number of years as they really understand the sector and how pharmacies operate. This deal was significant for us due to the number of properties involved and complexity of the transactions. James and the team made this process as simple as possible and were always there to talk through any questions. We would not hesitate to recommend their services and look forward to working with them again in the future.
