At Scott Richards, we fully understand the dental industry, we know how practices are run and the commercial issues they face and can assist with all of your legal needs.
Partner Paul Dyson specialises in dental legal work and acts for many dentists in all parts of the country, ranging from associates and small clinics to large dental practices. He has handled a number of dental sales and purchases spanning both freehold and leasehold properties, and has managed transactions for both private practices and NHS practices under GDS Contracts.
As specialist dental lawyers, we are experienced in dealing with private practices, whether “pay as you go” or under schemes such as Denplan or Practice Plan. We are fully aware of the constraints of the Care Quality Commission and the ongoing challenges facing dentists post-Covid, including recruitment issues, particularly in the NHS sector.
We are used to handling different scenarios involving NHS regional officers, including the underperformance of UDAs and have dealt with (and successfully pursued) the NHS on incorrectly issued Breach & Remedial Notices and otherwise.
To ensure transactions are carried out as smoothly as possible, we work closely with accountants, financial brokers & valuers, business sale agents and other professionals dedicated to the dental profession.
As a professional practice ourselves, we understand that you are busy, either in surgery or running your business, so we work around your time pressures and in a way that suits your schedule.
