    Dental Lawyers

All dental practices and their owners and operators, whether large or small, face commercial pressures as regulations, health and safety requirements and public and private funding mixes are changing.

Our specialist dental team is focused on helping you and your business grow and succeed, drawing on our wealth of experience and sector knowledge to help you achieve your commercial goals.

Our team can advise you all aspects of law in this sector including property, regulatory, corporate, employment, intellectual property, competition, and litigation.

Specialist lawyers for the dental sector

Whether you are a sole practitioner, a larger corporate, an investor or financier of deals in the sector we have the expertise to help you. Areas we regularly advise on include:

  • sales and purchases of dental practices (asset and share based transactions);
  • CQC requirements in the UK;
  • dental performance issues;
  • UK NHS contracts: GDS, PDS or PDS Plus;
  • associate contracts;
  • partnership, shared expense and shareholders agreements; and
  • judicial review of decisions of regulators.

We can also represent you in professional misconduct and criminal offence claims (including breaches of medicines law and allegations of fraud made by NHS Area Teams, the NHS Counter Fraud Service (NHS Protect), or the General Dental Council).
