Recognition of Expertise:
"I would very much like to thank Richard Hough, Rupert Gill and David Seddon for their excellent professional service during the recent sale of our pharmacy business. I had dealt with Richard before when he had helped me to setup a pharmacy specialising in veterinary medicines. This had proven to be a testing and unusual project but Richard expertly guided us through a number of regulatory difficulties to a successful conclusion. Therefore, when the time came to sell our community pharmacy, I had no doubts about approaching Richard again to deal with the process.
Richard introduced me to Corporate Partner, Rupert Gill, and to David Seddon, who would be assisting him. Together they proved to be an extremely effective and efficient team and the sale moved successfully to completion despite the many difficulties that came along to test them. I would like to thank them for their professionalism and expertise and, importantly, for being so pleasant to deal with.
I have no doubts in recommending the Brabners pharmacy team to my fellow pharmacists."
Paul Turney, director, Butt Lane Healthcare Ltd
"I would like to thank Richard Hough and his team for their extremely professional and courteous support throughout the sale of my pharmacy business. I was acutely aware of the difficulties that would lie ahead of the sale and was apprehensive about the process that would follow. However, having met Richard and corporate partner, Rupert Gill, I felt reassured and confident that the sale would be in the hands of professionals who understood the complexities of selling a pharmacy business. I was introduced to David Seddon early on, who became key in the direction of the sale. Again, he was superb and managed all aspects of the sale with great skill and attitude.
The team helped to overcome some difficult barriers during the sales process. However, through patience and persistence the team resolved all the issues right through to completion.
I would like to thank Richard and his team for all their help and support throughout the sale . I would recommend Brabners pharmacy team to prospective pharmacy clients and indeed will be using their services again for potential future sales and other legal matters."

“Our selection of the Brabners pharmacy team to act on our behalf proved to be one of the most valuable decisions we made during the sale of our pharmacy business. After looking at a number of commercial practices experienced in corporate acquisitions and disposals, Brabners best demonstrated knowledge, empathy and commitment. Acting under the guidance of Richard Hough, the team acted with great professionalism and diligence to negotiate an equitable sales agreement for all shareholders; they helped avoid the traumas that many had anticipated at the beginning of the process. Our sincere thanks to the team”.
