Kevin Laidlaw joins Lancaster Pollard’s M&A group

Lancaster Pollard vice president Kevin Laidlaw (pictured) is joining the firm’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) group.

The transition of Laidlaw to the M&A group is an integral aspect of the firm’s national efforts to expand its sell-side and buy-side advisory services for seniors housing and care properties.
“We are thrilled to have Kevin as part of our team,” says Chad Elliott, managing director of Lancaster Pollard’s M&A group. “For over eight years, he has been an instrumental part of Lancaster Pollard’s success and has developed a keen understanding of the factors that drive valuation, such as key financial and operational metrics as well as the regulatory and reimbursement environment.”
With over 27 years of experience as an advisor, investor, lender, buyer and seller, Lancaster Pollard has a specialised understanding of local and national markets, and relationships with a wide variety of strategic and financial buyers and investors. Through its orchestrated M&A process, the firm aims to provide sellers with access to qualified buyers who can complete transactions with minimal disruption to operations. For buyers, Lancaster Pollard offers a full range of debt and equity funding options and valuation assessment.
“Our comprehensive understanding of the broad seniors care market results in a consultative approach and ability to analyse a transaction from both the seller’s and buyer’s perspective which, in turn, allows us to deliver certainty of execution for our clients,” says Elliott.
Since joining the firm in 2007, Laidlaw has been responsible for all details involved in the underwriting and closing processes for over 160 transactions totalling more than USD1.2 billion. He graduated from Denison University with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
