Health, medical and specialist practitioners need advice that caters to personal, practice and business interests. Legal advice needs to be both holistic and strategic, to balance demands from each of these areas.
Cowell Clarke’s Health practice group has extensive experience in assisting health and medical practitioners to create value and manage risk in both their practice and private affairs. We know demands from patients, your practice, staff, family and business interests each compete for attention. You want services delivered in a way that allows you to focus on attending to patients as a priority, while your practice and business interests continue to deliver value.
Our clients include both health and medical professionals, practitioners and health related businesses. We advise surgeons, consultants, medical specialists, general practitioners, dentists, medical practices, pharmacists and pharmacies, as well as allied health professionals such as physiotherapists and psychologists. We work in cooperation with your advisers - accountants, financial services consultants and insurance brokers - to gain a complete understanding of your circumstances. Then we collaborate with you, your network and our own internal experts, to provide structuring and tax advice, commercial negotiation and contract management, employment and estate planning services to deliver the value and outcomes you need. Our comprehensive knowledge of relevant legislation, including legislation specific to health, enables us to resolve issues and managing future risk.
With long term client relationships, we have continued to advise clients from practice establishment, growth and the entry of new partners, through to sale of interests and investment in new practices, businesses and property.
