Birkett Long LLP has helped Healthcare Homes Group boost their portfolio of residential and nursing homes to 37 homes, following the acquisition of two care homes in February and March 2018 under two separate transactions.

Healthcare Homes Group provides care and support to individuals either in the group’s homes, or via its homecare service, across East Anglia and the South of England. The Old Vicarage, in Dorset, and Haughgate House, in Woodbridge supports the group’s increasing geographic reach.

Birkett Long LLP advised Healthcare Homes Group on all legal matters relating to both acquisitions, working in conjunction with Real Estate Investment Trust, Omega Healthcare Investors Inc. lawyers, Arnold & Porter, addressing some complex structural arrangements to reflect the two party buyer nature of the deals. The Birkett Long team was led by Head of Commercial & Corporate Finance, Tracey Dickens, assisted by team member Tim Field, Martin Hopkins (Employment) and Melanie Bache (Commercial Real Estate).
