Pharmacy Practice Solicitors

The pharmacy sector is now becoming an increasingly specialised area and a pharmacist's need for legal advice from lawyers with experience and understanding of this market will be paramount in ensuring any sale or purchase of a pharmacy will proceed smoothly.

Our pharmacy consultants can advise on the broad spectrum of pharmaceutical acquisitions work from first pharmacy purchases, dealing with relocation or the sale of an entire portfolio.

Our consultants understanding of the key issues and legislation surrounding this business sector means we are able to deliver a fast and cost effective service to our clients.

We can advise pharmacists practising as employees, locums, sole proprietors or in partnership or as superintendents of limited companies, including major chains, on all manner of regulatory, disciplinary and fraud matters arising from investigations by the General Pharmaceutical Council, PCTs, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the Police, Crown Prosecution Service and at Coroners' Inquests.

We can advise on investigations by the GPhC and its Inspectors, attend interviews under caution with clients and prepare written submissions to the Investigating Committee. Where a matter proceeds to the Fitness to Practice Committee, we deal with case preparation and provide representation at hearings. 

Our lawyers are experienced advocates and can conduct many of the hearings themselves. Where necessary, we have established relationships with specialist Counsel to provide professional and high quality representation.

We can advise clients on the GPhC Code of Ethics, the Medicines Act, the Misuse of Drugs Act and other legislation in relation to professional conduct issues and other health care professional investigations.
