Carter Bond is a proactive boutique commercial law firm specialising in corporate law with a strong legal history in servicing sectors including Healthcare (Pharmacy, Dental and Care Homes), Property and M&A work.
As a commercial law firm predominately working with businesses and business owners, Carter Bond also provides services in respect of Commercial Property, Dispute Resolution/Litigation, Employment and Intellectual Property.
Our customers and pharmacy sector clients instruct as we are a ‘one-stop shop’ for businesses. We can carry out the transactional work but also provide commercial advice as well as advising on the property, employment and any dispute matters – all of which are at some point required by businesses owners.
How can you help our members?
Carter Bond has significant experience advising on pharmacy business purchases and sales, whether this is a first-time buyer/seller or a corporate group.
As a commercial law firm, we have the expertise to support and advise on Commercial Property, Employment Law and Dispute Resolution – all areas which business owners benefit from and, pharmacists and pharmacy owners, are no different.
Whilst all the lawyers at Carter Bond are City trained we don’t charge City prices. Our offices are in N.W. London and this allows us to pass the cost saving to our clients.
We also have expertise and resources to advise on routine as well as complex pharmacy business matters.
We can advise on:
- Business purchases/sales – this is includes both and asset transactions
- Employment contracts/consultancy and locum agreements
- Employee claims and disputes
- Shareholders’/partnership/joint venture agreements between NPA members who are business partners
- Commercial property including buying the freehold, assignment of leases or entering new leases
- Enquiries regarding compliance with NHS and GPhC requirements
- Change of ownership and/or superintendent applications with NHS and GPhC
- Dispute resolution matters
What can you offer our members as added value?
In addition to providing high quality legal advice on their matters, as part of our work our lawyers would provide legal ‘coaching’ to NPA members in relation to day-to-day Employee/HR matters, relationships with landlords, commercial negotiation generally, compliance and data protection advice with a view to empowering the NPA members when dealing with their business.
We have also applied for recognition in the Legal 500 and specifically for the pharmaceutical sector. We feel that we have a wealth of experience and this recognition will provide added assurance to clients in the Pharmacy sector.
