Douglas Roberts PR (5) Y resizeA multi-service team from Lindsays advised Black & Lizars on all aspects of the transaction which included corporate input from Partner, Douglas Roberts, property advice by Stacy Campbell, Director, and employment law assistance from Ben Doherty, Partner.

Black & Lizars, one of Scotland’s largest independent optical groups, has acquired Clements Hearing Services in Glasgow as it expands its offering in audiology. Black & Lizars already provides audiology services across a number of practices, as well as in people’s homes. This deal will boost the optical group’s audiology offering by providing a central, stand-alone location to build and develop services.

Douglas Roberts, who led Lindsays team for this deal, commented “We are delighted to have helped Black & Lizars in all legal aspects of completing this important strategic acquisition.”

Michelle le Prevost, Managing Director of Black & Lizars said: “Clements is a state-of-the-art centre of excellence and allows us to offer the highest standard of service to existing and new patients. It will help us explore new routes to market and form the building blocks for future development, including recruitment and training.”
