Lacrore has advised the seller of an eye clinic and group of practices in North Rhine-Westphalia including related real property.

The group consists of a private in-patient clinic and out-patient practices in 8 locations. It looks back on a long standing tradition of ophthalmic treatment, research and innovation and is also active in the area of medical development aid.

The sale is effected by share-deals and, from a regulatory perspective, comprises the transfer of several so-called medical care centres (Medizinische Versorgungszentren – MVZ) and the transfer of a so-called cross-district medical practice group (Überörtliche Berufsausübungsgemeinschaft – ÜBAG) to the purchasers.

Advising lawyers were: Dr. Arnd Barnitzke, Dr. Holger Bergbach
