Law firm shows its muscle in physio group acquisition
RehabWorks, the Suffolk specialist in musculoskeletal and mental health programmes, has completed the acquisition of London-based Crystal Palace Physio Holdings – expanding the group to 20 sites around the UK.
No figures for the deal were disclosed. Locally based international law firm Mills & Reeve advised the buyer.
The organisation already has centres in Bury St Edmunds, Manchester, Fareham, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Glasgow, Rotherham and Swindon, offering preventative and treatment programmes.
Crystal Palace Physio Group has a network of 12 sites in London and the South East, providing musculoskeletal services to both the corporate and NHS markets.
Derrick Farrell, chief executive of RehabWorks said: “This is an important step in our ongoing journey of respect healthcare provision and in pushing the business towards becoming the leading UK provider of musculoskeletal and mental health solutions.
“We worked with Mills & Reeve because of their ability to handle a wide range of negotiations, allowing us to carry on with the day-to-day operations of running the business.”
Natalie Wade (pictured), Partner at Mills & Reeve added: “This was a great deal to work on. Combining the two businesses means they can capitalise on a variety of different opportunities and grow and expand into different markets.”
