Running any kind of business may demand the support of legal services with relevant specialised experience. We can help you find experts supporting the dental sector specifically.
Your dental practice is a business as well as a clinical service and, like any business, it will require the support of the legal profession.
Setting up, buying or selling a business will require partners and lenders agreements that are legally watertight. Negotiating with public authorities and health trusts must be supported by carefully worded agreements and knowledge of the procedures and protocols required. You need a legal expert to draw up contracts with staff, suppliers and landlords.
Inevitably, you will also need legal support to deal with any disputes as they arise. Expert understanding of the sector, and of the challenges and the relevant legal precedents that affect it, are to essential to minimise your costs.
Having access to legal advice is vital for the future of your practice.

Areas you may need support on include:
Sale and Purchase of Dental Practices
Both NHS and private dental practices may require support with due diligence processes, with the transfer of contracts, property and staff and with limitation of liability.
Regulatory and Contract Matters
You may seek advice in relation to the terms of NHS contracts and the overarching regulatory framework that governs them, including the GDS/PDS Regulations and the NHS Act.
You may also need assistance with CQC Regulation and Registration, or challenging CQC enforcement action. If a dental practitioner is the subject of investigation, or charged with a disciplinary offence by a regulatory and professional body, legal advice and representation where a disciplinary hearing is essential.
Employment and HR
Specialist legal advice and support may be essential for both employers and employees in the dental sector, with discrimination issues and employment tribunals, recruitment, contracts and service agreements and settlement agreements in the case of redundancy and reorganisation
A lawyer with an understanding of the sector will be able to draw up contracts which are fair and legally sound and unambiguous. Your practice will be on a firm and more businesslike footing and protected in the event of negligence and other disputes.
Sale and Purchase and Development
Specialist property advice may be essential for securing leases from third party developers, institutions, investors and landlords under terms that are acceptable to practitioners or contract holders. It may also be required for advising and securing exit strategies from leases.
Complaint handling, commercial litigation & disputes
Running a business will inevitably mean that disputes are possible with suppliers and with customers, and can become a major drain on management time and resources unless handled quickly and efficiently. Expert legal representations can help you avoid financial liabilities and loss of professional reputation. Dealing with complaints and contractual disagreements on a legal basis can avoid escalation, and so can actually reduce time and disruption in dealing with it.
