Pharmacy - Pharmacy Law

We have a busy pharmacy team advising pharmacies on acquisitions and disposals and commercial aspects of their pharmacy businesses. We act for independent pharmacists, multiples and chains. We deal with all the lenders, wholesalers, advisers and agents in the sector. We have  noticed that since the introduction of Category M that times are harder for retail pharmacists. There has been a drive by pharmacists towards newer income streams and cost reduction.

We can deal with:

  • Share sales
  • Asset sales and TUPE employee guidance and consultation advice on the transfer of employees
  • Pharmacies into Medical Centres
  • Buying and selling pre-trading NHS Pharmacy Consents
  • Management Agreements
  • employee issues and disputes
  • Locum Agreements
  • Intellectual Property (trademarks and disputes)
  • Commercial property matters including pharmacy leases and freehold options
  • Dealing with your Landlord
  • Refinancing
  • FP34 Issues
  • PNAs
  • We can help with wholesale pharmacy
  • Regulatory Matters (market entry, GPhC investigations and Fitness to Practise hearings)
  • Succession Planning
  • NHS Contract
  • Shareholder Agreements and Cross Options dealing with life policies
  • CQC issues

We write articles in the Pharmacist, the Pharmacy Journal’s Retail Roundup and are waiting to be put on the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) preferred suppliers list.


We are also members of the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies
