Urban and rural experience

From city-centre locations to rural development, and small shops to major London offices, we’ve worked on all types of projects including nursing homes, factories, pubs, hotels and schools.

As we have such a large team, we’re adept at dealing with multiple portfolio sales – the sale of healthcare properties, for example – in tight timescales. Our expertise extends beyond commercial property law. We have solicitors in our wider team with specialisms in property development, construction, planning, rural affairs, and have specialist property litigators to draw on should they be required.

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.”
