The corporate team at Cripps Pemberton Greenish has advised husband and wife team, Alpesh and Sangeeta Patel, on their acquisition of Oakland Hall Day Nursery Limited.    


Based in Ipswich, Oakland Day Nursery is dedicated to the care and development of children from 3 months to 5 years. The award-winning setting aims to provide the highest level of care and attention to every child in a friendly environment where learning is fun.


Sangeeta Patel at Puddleducks Holdings commented “We are delighted to now own and run Oakland Hall Day Nursery and are excited about working with its successful team. We are grateful for the support of Julie Hughes and the team at Cripps Pemberton Greenish, who handled all the legal aspects of the transaction diligently and professionally. We look forward to working with them on our next purchase.”


Julie Hughes led the legal team advising Puddleducks, which also included Lauren Romo and Rosie Harvey from the transactional team and property specialist, Kelly Arnold, working together with Sophie Willcox at Christie & Co. The team utilised the firm’s bespoke deal management technology, Cripps Collaborate, to project manage the acquisition process. The platform promotes increased collaboration between all parties, which in turn drives transparency and efficiency.
