YOUR PRACTICE NEEDS A LEGAL EXPERT WHO UNDERSTANDS THE SECTOR - FIND YOURS HERE
Working together for chemist and pharmacy retailers
Running any kind of business may demand the support of legal services with relevant specialised experience. We can help you find legal experts supporting the chemists shop and pharmacy sector.
Your chemist shop is a retail business as well as a professional practice. Like any other business it will require the support of the legal profession.
Setting up, buying or selling will require 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.
Having access to legal advice is vital for the future of your practice.

Why you need specialised legal expertise for your pharmacy or chemist shop business
The law is complex - and many legal professionals concentrate on a particular area. This means that, if you are a pharmacist or chemist shop owner, you need a legal advisor who specialises in the sector to avoid putting yourself and your business at a disadvantage when it comes to contracts and legal disputes.
Business Start-Ups and Company Formation
Setting up any business deserves professional support. A legal expert who understands the pharmaceutical sector can help you ensure that arrangements with landlords, partners and staff all meet the legal requirements - and protect your interests.
Employment and HR
Discrimination issues and employment tribunals, recruitment, contracts and service agreements, and settlement agreements, in the case of redundancy and reorganisation, all require specialst support.
A lawyer with an understanding of the retail chemist sector will be able to draw up contracts which are fair, legally sound and unambiguous. Your practice will be on a firm and more businesslike footing, as well as protected in the event of disputes.
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 can mean disputes are possible with suppliers and with customers. These can become a major drain on management time and resources unless handled quickly and efficiently. Expert legal representation to deal with complaints and contractual disagreements on a legal basis can avoid escalation, and so can actually reduce costs.
Selling your business
The time will come when you are ready to sell your practice on.
A solicitor with an understanding of the sector and the challenges involved can be essential to support negotiations and to draw up an appropriate agreement which will avoid the potential for ongoing liabilities
