Hewi is a Legal Director in our corporate team.

She is an experienced corporate lawyer who also specialises in dental practice sales and acquisitions within our health sector.

Hewi also advises on issues such as practice structures, protecting NHS PDS/GDS Contracts, NHS 24 Hour Retirement, CQC registration applications, NHS GDS/PDS Regulations, incorporations, partnership agreements, expense share agreements and dental practice due diligence.

She acts for a range of clients including independent dentists, corporate dental groups and dental care professionals.

Hewi has a strong background in corporate law and has practised for over a decade. She is highly experienced in acting on the sale and acquisition of dental practises of all sizes, from single to multiple site locations, including the sale of a £2.5 million site.

She also specialises in acting for the spouses of dentists as sole NHS Contractors who have passed away, securing NHS contracts in a caretaker role, notifying the CQC of the death of a registered provider and enabling practices to maintain CQC registration on a caretaker provision.

Hewi joined us in January 2023 and is based in our Leeds office.

Hewi Ma was recommended to me by my accountant. Having spoken to a few firms, I was very impressed by Hewi’s attention to detail. She was supportive throughout and never tired of my constant (and irritating) questions and requests. Nothing was too much for her and she got the job done extremely efficiently. Hewi has advised me since on another matter and I would never hesitate to instruct her again.

Hewi Ma recently helped us with the acquisition of some costly dental practices, comprising both NHS and private entities, as well as the associated freeholds. The acquisitions were complicated to say the least and involved some challenging situations with the sellers. Hewi was fantastic throughout, providing advice, support and reassurance as and when required. She always responded in a timely manner and was completely honest throughout the entire process. Her patience and upbeat manner were evident through out.

I have worked with Hewi for a number of years and she successfully enabled the purchase of my first practice. Hewi was there giving her excellent professional advice as well as moral support every step of the way in what can be a stressful and emotional time. Not only that, but she has continued to keep in touch and be supportive ever since. I would trust Hewi with any future dental practice purchases or sales and would recommend her to any dentist looking to buy or sell a practice.

I have had the pleasure of working with Hewi since 2014. I first met Hewi as Director at Goodman Grant Solicitors and was immediately impressed with Hewi's legal knowledge in the dental sector. Hewi has supported her clients on an array of NHS commissioning/contractual matters, practice acquisitions, contract transfers and CQC compliance matters. As the Director of Ascend Tendering Limited, it was important for our company to find the right working partner who has expert knowledge in the field and Hewi encompasses all of these things. Hewi is extremely meticulous and who I wholeheartedly trust to refer on my clients with the comfort they will receive a high quality service.

I have known Hewi for many years having met her when she acted for me on the sale of one of my practices. Throughout my entire transaction, she was professional, efficient and supportive. I know that selling a dental practice can be an arduous journey for some but with Hewi on my side, I was in safe hands. My sale went through seamlessly with Hewi working diligently and above all that, with cheerfulness and heart.

Following the passing of my father, Hewi was the first solicitor we contacted after a friend recommended her. My mother and I were incredibly impressed by her professional yet emotionally considerate manner, given the difficult situation we found ourselves in. She was able to convey legal jargon in layman's terms for my mother and I to understand. She was prompt with replies and kept us in the loop at all times, whilst being transparent about the potential bottlenecks and difficulties faced in long sale process. Given the multiple difficulties faced in the sales process, Hewi demonstrated fantastic problem solving skills under high pressure and time constraints. My mother and I would not hesitate to use Hewi's services again and would recommend her to anyone looking to complete a dental practice sale, regardless of complexity. She really did help us during an extremely difficult period and we could not give her higher praise for her professionalism, completeness and transparency through our 12-month relationship.
