Specialising in working with dental clients to achieve their dream of dental practice ownership, deal with employment or HR issues and support owners with the sale of their practice when the time comes, FTA Law has been founded to bring together a combination of legal skills and commercial understanding, knowledge and experience of the dental sector.
Following feedback from numerous disgruntled buyers and sellers and frustrating delays in the purchase/sale process, positive action was taken to create a new law firm that would specialise only in providing legal services to dentists and dental practice owners.
This decision has resulted in a new venture between the directors at Frank Taylor & Associates, one of the UK’s most successful sales broker’s for the dental profession, and established, respected and effective dental specialist lawyers, Thomas Coates and Sarah Buxton.
Client focused service
Lis Hughes, managing director at Frank Taylor & Associates, commented: ‘The directors at Frank Taylor & Associates decided they need to bring their values of client focused service to the legal sector and the best way to achieve this was through the establishment of FTA Law.
‘It has taken many months of careful planning to bring the right partners together and we were delighted when an agreement was reached with Thomas and Sarah who are both well established, respected and effective dental specialist lawyers.
‘It was important to both Sarah and Thomas that they continue to deliver their vision of providing services for their clients free from the constraints of the traditional legal practice model and we believe we have achieved this with our new venture.
‘We are all passionate about “doing things differently” and with our many combined values we look forward to working together as a group to continue to deliver outstanding customer services within the dental market.’
Shorten deal transaction times
FTA Law is committed to providing efficient and high levels of client legal services, whilst maintaining a commercial approach at all times, free from the stuffy, expensive and jargon-filled approach so often prevalent amongst the legal sector.
One of the key aims of FTA Law is to shorten deal transaction times and work with both purchasers and sellers to speed up the sales process and ensure satisfactory completions as efficiently and promptly as possible.
As part of the overall services offered by FTA Law there will be zero abort fees and fixed fees on the sale and purchase of practices, accompanied by a bespoke dental employment and HR service, advice on NHS and CQC matters, commercial property and lease advice, practice incorporations and the preparation of shareholders agreements, partnership agreements and expense sharing agreements.
The FTA Law team will be available at the forthcoming Dentistry Show (stand D35), taking place 22-23 April 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham.
