The Scenario

Cassandra currently co-owns her Melbourne practice with her practice partner. They have 10 doctors.

Cassandra is heavily involved in the day-to-day management of the practice on top of her clinic schedule. She can see an opportunity to provide more services in the area and is keen to expand the practice, or potentially open a new practice.

Cassandra’s situation

Cassandra’s practice partner has just told her he plans to sell his share in the practice. Cassandra sees this as a great opportunity to buy him out and grow the practice. She has used lawyers in the past but is looking for someone who understands her business.
