Ellisons Solicitors acted for the individual shareholders, Natalie Emmerson and Michelle Duggan, on their disposal of the entire issued share capital in Primary Care (UK) Limited to Voyage Care Limited for an undisclosed sum.

Primary Care was established by the Sellers in October 2000 and has gone from strength to strength under the guidance of the Sellers.

Voyage Care is a specialist care provider which supports over 3,000 people with a variety of care and support needs.

The transaction was completed in good time and to the timetable required by the purchaser.

The Ellisons team was led by Corporate Associate Paul Forsyth alongside Employment Partner Julian Outen and Paralegal Chris Harvey.

Paul Forsyth commented: “It has been a pleasure to assist Natalie and Michelle with their exit strategy, the transaction was concluded in good time mainly thanks to the excellent systems put in place at Primary Care by Natalie, Michelle and their team.”

Natalie and Michelle added:

“It has been a great pleasure working with Paul Forsyth. Communication was excellent and swift. The entire Ellisons team have been professional, supportive and informative throughout, with our best interests constantly at the forefront. We would highly recommend Ellisons to anyone planning their exit strategy.”

Paul has a high level of experience in the healthcare sector previously advising on several domiciliary care, care home, pharmacy and GP transactions.
