Linder Myers Solicitors has acted for Peter Sedgwick and his family on the Blackpool Pier acquisition including Blackpool’s Central and South Piers, which were on the market for a total consideration of £8.1 million.
All three of the resort’s iconic piers are now owned by Peter Sedgwick and his family following their acquisition of the town’s North Pier in 2011.
The team at Linder Myers Solicitors was led by partner and joint head of commercial property, David Stratton.
Commenting on the transaction, he said: “Our commercial property team has built up significant and widely recognised experience in the leisure sector. Peter Sedgwick is an experienced and longstanding leisure operator who will ensure many thousands of visitors continue to enjoy these wonderful attracations for years to come.”
Bilfinger GVA completed the sale of the piers on behalf of established leisure operator Crown Entertainment Centres.
Crown Entertainment Centre was advised by Gateley plc.
