Veterinary practice sale success: Aligning corporate, employment, and property law

Veterinary practice sale

Our expertise in corporate, commercial, employment, and property law played a key role in guiding four shareholders in selling their veterinary practice.

The transaction was complex, involving the alliance of three trading parts: a limited company, a partnership, and an LLP, into one entity before a full sale could be achieved.

Our comprehensive legal support included managing the corporate restructuring, handling the multiple real estate transfers, and the careful management of a shareholder’s retirement; ensuring the timing and order of each step were correct to avoid tax issues.

Collaboration was key. We worked in close partnership with the accountants, to ensure all tax-related aspects of the transaction were handled correctly. Our commitment to transparency and client engagement was evident as we maintained regular communication, keeping everyone informed and involved at every stage of the process.

Our team dedicated over 850 hours to providing this full service. We stood firmly by our clients, advocating for their best interests and creating strategies to ensure a smooth transaction.

Working on this project was a pleasure, and we wish our clients the best of luck with their future endeavours.


Edward Pettifer – Director and Veterinary Surgeon comments:

“The Rubric team went above and beyond for the sale of my practice, which wasn’t a straightforward one.  

It was their creative solutions and the way they really listened and responded to our needs that truly made a difference. We continue to work with them today and wouldn’t consider turning to anyone else for legal advice.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication.”
