Managing facilities from lenders is often complex but is an essential part of an organisation’s success. Regulation is becoming more rigorous which means funding into this area needs more tailored advice. From acquisitions and property finance to restructures and asset-based lending, our specialist banking team provide hands-on project management with an entrepreneurial approach and an in depth understanding of the health and social care sector.
We’re a trusted adviser to hundreds of healthcare providers and regulators across both public and private sectors. With one of the largest health and care law practices in the UK, our specialist lawyers provide advice across all areas of health and care law. Our unique perspective brings together public and private healthcare, allowing us to share insights that connect our clients together.
The banking and finance team are able to capitalise on the firm’s unique independent and public healthcare offering. Our ability to provide sector-focused transactional, property and regulatory advice means we win repeat work from funder and borrower clients in this sector.
Our experience in the healthcare sector covers the broad range of areas including:
Advising Clydesdale Bank/Virgin Money on new facilities to Gensmile Dental Care to fund its future growth and acquisition plans in the private dental sector.
Advising HSBC on its funding of the acquisition of Pearn’s Pharmacies Ltd by the Knights Chemist group.
Advising Santander Growth Capital on its £1.5m loan to Six Physio Limited to support its long-term acquisitive growth strategy.
Advising the selling shareholders on the MBO of Genesis Dental Group backed by August equity.
"They take a highly joined-up approach. You can always be sure that a conversation with one lawyer, will be passed onto all. A key point of difference is the significant partner attention that clients get."
"I have dealt with them for many years and have received consistently excellent service over that period. They have a real strength in depth to their Banking and Corporate teams and are extremely focused on client management with strong commercial negotiating skills."
In the last nine months of 2021 we saw a huge amount of activity across all sub-sectors of health and social care.
