About us

We were set up by the British Medical Association to provide expert legal advice to the medical community.

In 2015 we became licensed as a fully independent law firm, allowing us to provide you with a full range of services. Whether you are a GP Partner in need of a new partnership agreement, a group of GP practices who want to establish a network, or a doctor looking to update your Will, we have the expertise to support you at home as well as at work.

In addition to providing legal services to you and your family, we also act as the BMA’s legal services provider – meaning we stand with them at the forefront of medical policy to represent your needs.

You do not need to be a BMA member to use our services, but if you are, you will benefit from preferential rates. We provide support across the medical community, including:

  • Doctors
  • Medical students
  • GP practices and GP networks/federations
  • Local Medical Committees

A not-for-profit law firm

We are proud to operate on a not-for-profit basis, reinvesting any surpluses back into services for you and your colleagues. So, by working with us, you’re supporting the wider medical community.
