Higgs & Sons advises on childcare group’s expansion

Leading law firm Higgs & Sons has advised The Old Station Nursery (OSN) as the group continues its expansion with a further acquisition of a Northamptonshire business.

Higgs & Sons represented OSN in its acquisition of Bambino Day Nurseries, a group made up of reputable childcare settings in Harpole, Little Houghton and Wellingborough.

The latest procurement, for an undisclosed sum, is the latest step of OSN’s ambitious growth plans as it strives to become a significant market player in the UK.

Geoff Kettle, Business Services Partner at Higgs & Sons and project lead, said: “We’re pleased to have again successfully acted on behalf of OSN.

“We had an experienced team working on the transaction, including experts in corporate tax and pensions, employment and commercial property matters. The deal was completed seamlessly.

“OSN has further expansion plans and we look forward to working with the group again in the future.”

Sarah Steel, managing director of OSN, said: “We are excited to work with the team at Bambino to learn from them, review best practice and share our group ethos.”

Higgs has acted on all OSN’s acquisitions since the first in 2019. Following the addition of Bambino, the group now stands at 33 nurseries.

OSN was acquired by French-based childcare giant La Maison Bleue (LMB) in 2019, a multi-million-pound deal also orchestrated by Higgs & Sons.

Susheel Gupta, Higgs & Sons relationship manager for LMB and OSN, said “We have an excellent working partnership with OSN which has been built up over two years of frequent dealings.

“We look forward to working with the group again as it continues to strengthen its position within the UK childcare sector.”

Higgs & Sons can offer advice on anything from day-to-day legal issues to the buying, selling or restructuring of a business.

With years of experience and a strength in depth across all business areas, the firm’s business services department incorporates specialist teams focussing on corporate, commercial, tax and business wealth preservation, insolvency and business recovery and company secretarial services.
