If you are a pharmacist or pharmacy owner in Australia who is:

  • buying or selling a pharmacy business;
  • entering into a lease or amending your existing lease;
  • experiencing issues with your employees;
  • looking to obtain a new pharmacy approval;
  • objecting to a proposed pharmacy approval;
  • entering into a new partnership or making changes to an existing partnership arrangement, you’ve come to the right place.

Working with the pharmacy industry is what we do best.  In addition to our work on individual matters, we are also very pleased to be able to offer pharmacists a range of resources via our online shop.

Our experience in helping pharmacy businesses

We are well known in both the healthcare and legal industry for our expertise in pharmacy business matters.  Our director, Sarah Stoddart, has over 11 years’ experience working with pharmacy owners and pharmacy groups, and even some experience as a pharmacy assistant herself!

We work closely with pharmacy business brokers, pharmacy bankers and experienced pharmacy accountants to achieve the best outcome for our clients.

Sarah is a fantastic solicitor to work with! I have worked with Sarah on many, many pharmacy business transactions, on both the buy and the sell side. She is very experienced, practical, efficient and goes above and beyond to get the job done. I would definitely recommend Sarah to any potential pharmacy seller or buyer!

Natalie Sirianni, Attain Business Brokers

Over the years, we’ve seen the highs and lows of pharmacy ownership.  We know what it is like to embark on the pharmacy ownership journey or to sell a pharmacy that has become a huge part of your life.  We also know what it feels like to receive a thick bundle of documents from a landlord and not know where to start.  We know your business and your challenges.  We also know that we can give you peace of mind and clear pathways to help solve those challenges.

One of our recent pharmacist clients who completed the purchase of their first pharmacy business had this to say about us:

I’m very grateful to have had you in my corner through all of this, and I’d like to thank you for your attention to detail, and for being so efficient and patient throughout the entire process. It’s certainly made our lives so much easier given the complexity of these things, and I couldn’t recommend your services enough.

To say it is our pleasure to assist pharmacists with their business transactions is an understatement.  It’s our passion.  We love the uniqueness of pharmacy businesses and that we can use our deep knowledge of the healthcare industry to provide our clients with ongoing support to grow their businesses.

Our experience beyond pharmacy transactions

We help pharmacy businesses to grow by adding to their team, introducing new partners, expanding the size of their stores and getting approvals for new locations.

In addition to our work on the sale and purchase of pharmacy businesses, leasing and employment law matters, we are also regularly involved assisting pharmacy owners with employment law matters, preparing partnership agreements and improving their business practices.

We are also have significant experience in making applications to both the Australian Community Pharmacy Authority under the Pharmacy Location Rules as well as applications to the Minister for Health for exercise of ministerial discretion.  We know the process, as well as a few practical tips and tricks to give you the best opportunity to get your applications over the line!

Our extensive experience with pharmacy matters means that you can be confident that you are getting the best advice to achieve the best outcomes possible for your pharmacy business.
