Lawyers from our Corporate and Commercial team have acted on the sale of shares in Middlepatch Limited, a care provider running College Fields Nursing home in Barry providing end of life care for 68 residents.
The Shareholders of Middlepatch Limited, Mike and Rachel Kemp had operated College Fields since they first acquired the Grade II listed building in the 1980s. After 33 years of dedicated service, they have sold to experienced operators, Jacob and Beena George, who run a number of nursing homes in the area.
Commenting on Hugh James’s involvement, seller Mike Kemp said today:
“This company transaction was complex and at the end of it I felt I could not have been better represented. They dealt with issues that I would not have dreamt needed attending to and were prompt in dealing with challenges as they arose. As important to me was that Greg Williams and his colleagues kept me informed of progress as appropriate. We were well served and reassured that we were protected for the future. Would I use Hugh James again for a complex company transaction? The answer is a resounding ‘YES’”.
Greg Williams, Corporate Partner and Head of the Hugh James Healthcare team, added:
I was an honour to be trusted by Mike and Rachel to guide them through the process of selling their much-loved care home after 33 years of dedicated service. They are both hugely well respected in the care community and as well as running a standout care home have been very active in national care initiatives in roles with Care forum Wales. We wish Jacob and Beena all the best as they secure the future for College Fields Nursing Home and all the incredible work they do there.”
Greg further commented:
“Despite current challenges, this transaction and others that we are currently advising on shows the demand for well-run care operator businesses remains high.”
