He is a corporate lawyer and a member of our health sector who handles corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, company formations and restructuring, partnership and shareholder agreements and disputes.

David acts for a wide variety of clients and is experienced in acting for individuals and SMEs.

David heads up the Firm’s Pharmacy M&A Team and has established a reputation as a leading healthcare specialist lawyer, acting for a range of healthcare organisations along with healthcare professionals such as pharmacists, dentists and General Practitioners.

Selling a pharmacy is known to be stressful and we were therefore keen to ensure we picked a firm of solicitors that had experience, would be able to advise every step of the way, be supportive and available to answer questions when needed. Brabners ticked the box on all of these. We worked with David Seddon and the Brabners Pharmacy Team on our sale. David was extremely knowledgeable and knew how to deal with and approach all situations. Any advice given was clear and not clouded by legal jargon. He was both approachable and easy to talk to. A big plus for us was that David and the Team responded to emails and phone calls promptly, so things were never left outstanding for long. He spoke to us in the evenings when needed due to our day time work commitments — bonus! Needless to say we would highly recommend them!

I made the decision to bring my acquisitions over to Brabners in 2019 and my expectations were exceeded. In all my dealings with David Seddon, I found him to be very proactive, diligent, and always looking to go above and beyond the norms which other firms and solicitors settle for. I have already recommended David and Brabners’ Pharmacy Law Team to various groups, colleagues and friends. A very good firm of honest, reliable and passionate solicitors.

David Seddon and the corporate team offer an outstanding professional yet personal service. David has conducted three separate pharmacy sales for us. Selling a business can be complicated and emotional. David's specialist knowledge of the pharmacy sector, together with his accessibility and personal support, has been essential. We would not hesitate to recommend Brabners.

David Seddon and the team at Brabners have an excellent understanding of pharmacy. They clearly explained issues and gave very good advice. Friendly, efficient, and professional, David helped make the process of selling our two pharmacies straightforward and we were delighted with the service provided. Highly recommended.

Peter and Vivien Jamieson — Superintendent Pharmacist & Directors, Peter Jamieson Ltd

I have had dealings with David on both purchase and sale of recent Pharmacy transactions and, on both occasions, I have had total confidence in the advice offered. David works tirelessly, listens, understands, and carries out his duties with total professionalism and is extremely proficient at explaining the complexities of the transaction. I would absolutely recommend the services of David Seddon and his team at Brabners for any Pharmacy sale / acquisition.

Nick Goodwin — Superintendent Pharmacist

I would like to thank David Seddon and the Brabners 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 initial sale and was apprehensive about the process that would follow . However, I felt reassured and confident that it would be in the hands of professionals who understood the complexities of selling a business like mine. I was introduced to David Seddon early on, who became key in the direction of the sale. He was superb and managed all aspects of the sale with great skill and attitude. The sale took around 5 months to complete with difficult barriers with respect to the purchaser’s own legal team and seemingly their lack of understanding of the sale. However, through patience and persistence, David and the team resolved all the issues right through to completion. I would recommend Brabners to future clients and indeed will be using their services again for potential future sales and other legal matters.
