Partnership Agreements

Practice Area Specialist:

Kevin Stillwell

Acting for more than 350 doctors’ practices in addition to individual GPs, Kevin can draw on extensive practical experience in addressing issues faced by GP clients. 

With his detailed knowledge of general medical practice Kevin is able to offer cost effective advice to general medical practitioners, especially in the areas of Partnership Agreements (formation and structuring), admissions and retirements, surgery relocation, leasing and building schemes, inter-partner disputes, practice mergers and federations.

With over 25 years in-depth experience advising GP practices and client base of over 350 Doctors’ practices, the Chambers Directory recommends Stillwells as “leaders in the field”. We are also a founding member of the National Association of Specialist Solicitors advising Solicitors (NASSAD).

In an area that has many idiosyncrasies, with our specialist understanding of the law relating to the medical profession, we help clients avoid many of the pitfalls that a non-specialist lawyer would not be aware of. This results in a better outcome for clients and good value for money. Failure to put a new or updated Partnership Deed in place when admitted can leave partnerships in a perilous legal position. Stillwells can help you avoid this by advising on all matters relating to new Partnership Deeds and updating existing Partnership Deeds, including more complex issues such as managing members whom become disruptive or a threat to a practice.
