Thomson Snell & Passmore’s top ranked corporate team acted on the sale of Kent based specialist healthcare provider High Quality Lifestyles Limited (HQL) to part of the Priory Group.
HQL has over 20 years built up a care home business with an excellent local reputation, providing care services to individuals with learning disabilities and /or autistic spectrum conditions, who sometimes present with severely challenging behaviours. HQL operates seven sites in the Dover and Ramsgate areas as well as domiciliary and outreach services.
The acquisition by Priory Group is part of their long term strategy to strengthen and grow their business.
Joanne Gallagher and her team helped to groom the HQL business in advance of the sale, by preparing vendor legal due diligence replies and documents to ensure replies were readily accessible. Although the precise terms and the amount of the company sale are confidential, the terms of the deal were complex due to the complicated regulatory environment that applies to the care sector.
Joanne Gallagher, a Partner in the Corporate Team, successfully project managed and led the transaction team at Thomson Snell & Passmore, working closely with Jo Wright (Commercial Property).
