Lawyers from Harrison Clark Rickerbys brought their in-depth knowledge of the health and social sector to advise Tracscare, which provides therapeutic residential and supported living services, in their acquisition of six supported living services and a specialist Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) service from Embrace.
Tracscare, which manages services throughout England and Wales, were advised and supported by Harrison Clark Rickerbys partners Charlotte Thornton-Smith, Rebecca Leask and Louise Crook, along with Helen Higginbotham, combining their healthcare, property and corporate expertise.
Charlotte Thornton-Smith, head of the firm’s health and social care team, said: “Our experience in the sector meant that we were able to offer Tracscare the level of detailed attention they needed for this important deal – I am delighted that we were able to support them in their development and we look forward to working with them again.”
The deal is the latest development in Tracscare’s expansion programme, following their acquisition of Brookdale Care, which supported people with autism, in 2015 and of ABI specialists New Bridges in 2016.
Peter Battle, Tracscare’s CEO, said: “This is a very exciting acquisition for Tracscare and Harrison Clark Rickerbys gave us, as ever, excellent sector-specific advice and support throughout – their efficiency, attention to detail and professionalism make them a pleasure to work with.”
