Please call us on 01707 329333 or email if you have any queries about the content of this article.

Our specialist property solicitors have acted for the nursery group, Davidson-Roberts Limited, since 2006. Over the last sixteen years, we have assisted the business with the acquisition of ten childcare premises. These include pre-schools, day nurseries and out of school clubs in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, and Bedfordshire.

The Crane & Staples Team, led by Commercial Property Solicitor Bonnie Twiggs, advised on all property aspects of the sale. This included group restructuring, de merger of the properties from the operating company coupled with refinancing with Lloyds, and thereafter sale of the group and leasing of the nursery premises.

Reflecting on the matter, Bonnie Twiggs says, “It was a pleasure to be able to advise our longstanding client on the sale of the group, especially as we have seen their nursery business grow since the original acquisition in 2006.”

Cripps Pemberton Greenish advised on corporate aspects, with Grant Thornton advising on corporate finance in relation to the deal.

The client, Jane Roberts, commented "Our long-standing partnership and my complete faith in Crane & Staples' expert advice has always led to good outcomes; this complex property transaction being no exception."
