BPE acts for Vets on the Park in sale and buy back

The corporate team from Cheltenham-based BPE Solicitors has acted for the owners of Vets on the Park, an independent veterinary practice in Cheltenham, in the sale of half of the business to Medivet Group Limited. The business continues to be managed and run by Alison Jones and her team of dedicated veterinary staff.

Medivet’s investment brings with it the support of a large veterinary operation which will help to support back office systems and the administration that comes with running any small business. Becoming part of the Medivet family of veterinary professionals will allow Alison to tap into a huge network of knowledge, experience and other like-minded professionals focussed on the care of animals.

Emma Payne, Senior Associate at BPE who advised Alison said: “It was a pleasure acting for Alison to help her to move her business to the next phase in its life. She was keen to retain a strong interest in the business and to continue to work for it to provide continuity of care for her long-standing customers and for her staff.”

Alison Jones said: “When I started Vets on the Park in 2001, I wanted to be sure that we provided the very best care for our customers’ pets. All of our staff have a life-long interest in animals, and recognise that for many, a pet is a valued member of the family, so their care is incredibly important.

By structuring this deal as we have, I can be assured that the business will continue to provide the best possible service, while benefitting from more efficient operating practices.”

Working with owner-managed businesses is something that comes as second nature to BPE, which itself is owner-managed, so the team understands the importance of making sure deals are structured to protect the best interests of the business owner.
