Acuity Law advises Portman in the successful purchase of nine dental businesses
Key Contact: Jon Lawley
In an action-packed five weeks, the Acuity healthcare team has advised Portman Dental on the successful purchase of nine dental businesses in England. Starting with the purchase of Hob Hey Dental in Warrington on 29 January and ending with the purchase of Heath Dental in Fleet on 2 March, the Acuity team (led by Jon Lawley and comprising Charlotte Whitehead, Madie Chapman, Chris Doherty, David Williams, Ffion Morgan, Katie Shanahan, and Andrea Burgess) pulled out all the stops with seven completions coming in four days and one deal completing a mere 28 days after heads of terms were signed.
Corporate Partner, Jon Lawley commented “I am delighted with the strength and depth demonstrated by Acuity’s Portman team. This is a true testament of our relationships as ‘trusted business advisors’ to Portman Healthcare. Portman’s deal times have nearly halved in the first two months of this year which has allowed us to increase the number of deals we’re taking on from them.”
Andy Sloan, Portman Dental’s Business Development Director, said: “As a company we set ourselves extremely ambitious targets and we never doubted that Acuity, with its strength in depth, would rise to meet the challenge we set them. Of particular note is the completion of our purchase of The Dental Surgery based in the Corn Exchange in the City of London-thanks in part to the cohesion of the Portman and Acuity teams as well as the guidance and counsel provided by Jon and Charlotte, this key deal completed seven weeks after signing heads of terms. With our deals now routinely completing in around three months, we’ll be looking to keep Jon, Madie and the rest of the Acuity team busy with plenty more completions in the months ahead.”
