Managing your partnership

Associate agreements

It is important to have a written contract in place if you engage associates at your practice or if you are an associate working at a practice. This ensures that the relationship between all parties is properly regularised. We are experienced in the preparation of bespoke associate agreements and regularly advise on them. In our experience, problems can arise if the engagement is solely based on verbal arrangements. This becomes particularly important when considering the protection of goodwill and restrictions on working post-termination.

Partnerships and expense sharing arrangements

We have wide experience in the preparation of expense sharing agreements and new partnership deeds. These need to be robust and up to date to support the good governance and subsequent stability of your business.


We can provide advice in relation to CQC inspections, including providing vital training sessions prior to inspection and, if necessary, assistance in challenging erroneous findings afterwards. We know how important a good rating is and have unrivalled experience in supporting providers of health and social care with these issues and a proven track record in delivering successful outcomes in relation to CQC inspection.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Drafting Partnership Deeds and Expense Sharing Agreements
  • Advising on New Partnership Formations
  • Retirement of Partners and Admission of new Partners
