We offer specialist services to General Practitioners and those providing general medical and primary care services.

We know that GPs are under constant pressure. Whether it’s to provide seven-day opening hours, manage staff recruitment, cope with funding cuts, take early retirement or simply juggle operating costs such as practice staff salaries, equipment and rent.

Meeting the Challenges – How FJG can help.

Virtually all of these pressures can be eased by sound legal advice. Our understanding of the industry has allowed us to tailor support services which can help practices meet these challenges:

  • Partnership and succession issues – We can advise on the legal agreements which any GP partnership should have in place and on arrangements for retirement and admission of new profit sharing partners.
  • Property – There are often associated property transactions which need to take place with partnership issues. Finance needs to be obtained to discharge capital and property interests of outgoing partners
  • Mergers – Practices frequently face challenges arising out of prospective mergers. We have an expert team of corporate lawyers who can structure these transactions in the most effective way.
  • Disputes – We have trained mediators who can help when disputes arise with regard to partnership and general governance issues within practices.
  • Contracts – Ever changing commissioning contracts, IT contracts for the supply and maintenance of new technology all require expert legal advice if expensive mistakes or unforeseen liabilities are to be avoided.
  • Employment & HR – We have expert employment lawyers available and access to outsourced temporary HR support. We can also arrange Health and Safety audits and support. We won’t tie you into long term contracts where you pay irrespective of the level of service you receive. Insurance to cover the practice for legal costs and employment awards is also available.
  • Personal Legal Services – We can provide individual support to General Practitioners in relation to their individual legal needs such as Wills, trusts and IHT planning. We have a large private client department which specialises in these areas with lawyers available across Essex and in central London.

Initial telephone consultations when we can discuss the needs of the practice and structure an appropriate legal support service are free. Call Tony Fisher today on 01245 584515 or email us at medical@fjg.co.uk.
