Partnership agreements, mergers and premises: Avoiding disputes for GP practices

Whether practices are working at scale or simply keen to avoid messy disputes, a partnership agreement can provide essential protection.

A partnership agreement – sometimes called a partnership deed – can clarify the rights and responsibilities of the individual partners and reduce the risk of distress or disruption to the business when circumstances change.

At this event on 9 July in Manchester and 11 July in London, Daniel Kirk and Puja Solanki, healthcare specialist lawyers with Capsticks, explain why every practice should have a partnership deed, the options available and what protection they provide.
