Law firm celebrates launch with free HR support for dental professionals

28 September 2023

To celebrate the launch of Buxton Coates Solicitors, a full-service, independent law firm providing bespoke legal services for dental professionals, their team of experts is offering 10 hours of free HR and employment advice to dental practices on October 10, 2023, to help offset the ongoing challenges increasingly being faced by the sector.

HR and employment advice needs are, perhaps, higher than ever before, in so small part as a result of skill mix changes to the NHS contract, IR 35 and the self-employment issue, staff shortages across the profession, and increased regulatory requirements.

With this in mind, the Buxton Coates team, who have over 20 years of experience between them, offers comprehensive support in a number of significant areas, including associate agreements and self-employment issues for dental hygienists and dental therapists.

In addition to HR and employment advice, Buxton Coates offers the following services:

  • Practice sales and purchases
  • Practice incorporations
  • Commercial advice, including expense sharing agreements, partnerships, and shareholder agreements
  • Commercial property advice, including leasehold drafting and negotiation, plus freehold sales and purchases, as well as overseeing buy-to-lets and property portfolios for landlords
  • NHS contract advice and NHS disputes
  • Commercial litigation, including contractual disputes

Buxton Coates Solicitors officially opened their doors in July 2023, following a buyout from FTA Law, marking a change in name but continuing their commitment to delivering exceptional service, ensuring clients continue to receive an unbeatable level of expertise, professionalism, and dedication.

Speaking about this exciting move, Sarah Buxton, director of Buxton Coates Solicitors, commented, “Thomas Coates, the managing director, and I are delighted to be operating under the Buxton Coates name. Rest assured, our principles and values remain resolute, and we are very much looking forward to supporting dental professionals in the years to come.

“Our specialist team embraces new and dynamic ways of offering legal services focusing on absolute transparency on fees and a high level of prompt and efficient service tailor made to you and your needs."
