GPs & primary care

Our specialist lawyers have been working with GPs and primary healthcare providers for over 25 years. We incorporate GP federations, act for GP partnerships, and deal with premises, partnership deeds, disputes, employment issues and property development.


We always provide clear, honest and pragmatic advice. Our lawyers understand the economic and political issues facing the sector and provide all the expert support and advice you need.


Federations and integrated care organisations: We will help you to provide a successful primary health care service. New federations will be structured in an easy-to-maintain manner so you can focus on your daily priorities. We also advise on governance issues to ensure you are compliant with the law.


Partnerships: From due diligence to drafting legal documentation, our services are always tailored to the specific practices involved. Our primary care team specialises in partnership deeds, merging GP practices, and resolving disputes.


Commercial law: Our specialist commercial team advises on joint ventures and all the legal dimensions of NHS standard contracts, GMS/PMS contracts, and sub-contracting.


Disputes: We are adept at finding early settlements and favourable outcomes for you whilst controlling costs.


Regulatory law: We have specific expertise at handling CQC issues, NHS contract negotiations, GMS/PMS practice merger and contract variations and practice closures.


Employment law: Creating robust employment contracts and effective disciplinary procedures are two of our specialisms. We also provide expert advice on redundancies and the transfer of employees following a merger.


Property: We have the largest property team in the South East, which acts for NHS trusts, with specialists in purchases, funding, developments, leases and sales.


Because of our extensive experience in the sector, we can guide you through the legal complexities, see things from your point of view, and help you build successful federations and partnerships that make a difference to people’s lives.
