LIVERPOOL, MANCHESTER & PRESTON, UK: Previous Goodman Grant Solicitors director Nicola Lomas has been appointed by law firm Brabners to help expand its health care practice into the dental market. With the step, the North East-based law firm aims to meet increasing demand for tailored legal services by both NHS and private dental practitioners.

Lomas has more than ten years’ experience of working as a corporate lawyer in the dental industry, advising clients on a number of legal issues, including the buying and selling of dental practices, incorporations, expense sharing and partnership agreements, as well as associate contracts. In a comment on her appointment, she said that the market remains extremely active, with clear demand for legal services as businesses expand and consolidate their operations.

“Areas such as cosmetic dentistry are also opening up new revenue streams, which has led to a number of larger businesses that offer both NHS and private dental care reviewing their options for further growth and expanding the services they provide,” she said.

Lomas will add to Brabners’ nationally recognised team of health care solicitors, some of whom have practical experience of working within the NHS and in private practice as health care professionals, the company said.

“We offer a range of legal services tailored to the healthcare sector and Nicola’s impressive understanding of the challenges facing the dental profession, alongside her unrivalled expertise in this area, ensures we’re well-placed to support our dental sector clients,” Brabners head of health care Richard Hough explained.

Active in a number of commercial sectors, Brabners offers a complete law service to health care professionals in the UK. The company operates via subsidiaries in Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.
