Charles Russell Speechlys advises Country Court Care on acquisition of three care homes
Charles Russell Speechlys has advised Country Court Care, the nursing care home operator, on the acquisition of the business and assets of three care homes in the London Borough of Merton, from Central and Cecil Housing Trust.
Founded as a family business in 1983, Country Court Care has undergone rapid expansion over the last nine years, growing from 200 to over 1600 beds in that time. The group continues to retain the same family-led management and their belief is that all older people deserve the best quality of life, which sits at the heart of the every-day ethos in each of their homes. Country Court Care delivers award winning care through its care homes, located across the UK.
The latest addition of these homes will form an integral part of Country Court Care’s London hub of care facilities, joining their existing two homes in the capital.
Alykhan Kachra, Managing Director of Country Court Care Group said: “We are extremely pleased to have acquired Carter House, Link House and Woodland House nursing homes. We have a 5-star standard template that we implement in all of our homes, ensuring we offer the best possible facilities and provide the high-level of family-led care we have become known for. We really appreciate the continued support of the team at Charles Russell Speechlys, whose expertise and commercial guidance were invaluable to getting the deal done”.
Corporate partner at Charles Russell Speechlys, David Coates commented: “ We were pleased to assist the Country Court Care team on this acquisition, through which we were able to provide both corporate expertise and sector knowledge given our track record in the healthcare space.”
The Charles Russell Speechlys team, led by David Coates, also comprised associate Nathan Lightman from the Corporate team, Real Estate associate Ajay Rana, Banking associates Cara Fulker and Edith Lai and Amna Khan, and Tax associate Helen Coward.
