Welcome to Clarkson Wright & Jakes Ltd (“CWJ”) Medical Partnerships team. Although we are all experts in our respective fields, we have combined our expertise to provide a comprehensive specialist service to medical practitioners.
We have many GP clients in Kent, the South East and elsewhere. Our specialisation is, in fact, recognised on a nationwide basis as our team is featured in the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession.
Nicky Androsov, who is an expert in settling and advising on commercial contracts, heads up the team, while Deepak Gupta is able to deal with the many and varied property arrangements associated with the ownership and occupation of surgeries. Deepak has recently been listed as an “associate to watch” by Chambers and features in the 2012 directory. Unavoidably, there will from time to time be disputes and in this respect Amanda Mehlin, a litigation partner, will be able to help you, while Rosa Brennan and her team will be able to offer their particular expertise in related aspects of employment law.
The BMA advises that all practices enter into written partnership agreements and for very good reasons which include the potential loss of your NHS Contract. It is important for the legal position with regard to the ownership and occupational arrangements to be accurately recorded in partnership agreements. Ideally practices should structure their partnerships to enable agreements to record surgeries as being the assets of the practice; alternatively the appropriate licence arrangements should be incorporated. You can read more about this on our Partnership Agreements page.
We have adopted an established procedure to prepare partnership agreements based on the completion of a questionnaire. On receipt of a completed questionnaire, we will give a firm estimate of the fees involved to prepare a draft agreement.
We always advocate taking the advice of other relevant professional experts and in particular practice accountants and surveyors experienced in this field. We can assist you in finding an appropriately qualified adviser.
