About me

Commercial property is all about negotiating, drafting and completing deals to develop land and buildings. These deals can sometimes be very complex and I’ll work with you to simplify the process, taking you through and explaining the details as clearly as possible. I’ll also work effectively to find solutions so the deal gets done, on time and on budget.

On a daily basis, I work with developers, healthcare providers, vets, pharmacists and banks, with a particular expertise in the Health and Social Care sector.

I’m very friendly and responsive – I’ll always be available to answer even the quickest of questions. As a team, we aim to keep our clients as satisfied as possible, and we’ll always drive the deal home to meet your deadlines if we can.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and walking my dog, as well as travel and exploration.

Bringing together health care and corporate expertise, Louise Crook and Peter Raybould advised National Care Group (NCG) on their acquisition of Shelton Care in Stoke-on-Trent, continuing their long-standing relationship with the group. Shelton Care has multiple facilities in the Stoke-on-Trent area and last year generated more than £10m in revenue. For nearly 30 years they have been providers of residential and nursing care for adults with learning disabilities, autism and other associated support needs. David Stanhope, Managing Director for NCG, said: “Shelton Care has made a name for itself in care and education in Stoke. The services and support it provides and, most importantly, its person-centred ethos, fit well with the NCG philosophy. Our first priority is to ensure a seamless transition for service users during the integration period which we are confident will be achieved working closely with the dedicated team at Shelton Care." “This strategic acquisition continues our drive to expand NCG’s footprint and highlights our growing ability to provide person-centred care throughout the UK.”
