I’m a partner in the real estate team with a focus in the healthcare sector and secured lending transactions.
I lead on a significant number of sales and acquisitions of businesses in the healthcare sector, with strength in dealing with more complex transactions and finding answers to challenging and technical issues. I deal with all corporate elements together with the associated real estate matters, which include lease assignments, new leases and freehold commercial property acquisitions.
I also work with banking clients on their secured lending matters, primarily in the healthcare and charitable sectors.

Holly Goacher is a bright and bubbly personality which is welcome when dealing with what can sometimes be a very dry process. She is a trusted partner for our firm and provides an excellent service.

Head of Customer & Lending
The firm really helped make this venture quick, stress free and clean. We are really pleased to be working with them.
Lyon Pub Company
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.
