Buying or selling a veterinary clinic or a healthcare practice is a crucial decision. So is establishing a collaborative practice.

Hejm Vilsgaard Advokater has been advising vets and the private healthcare practices all over Denmark for many years. We advise vets, doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, and many other professionals in the healthcare sector.


Buying or selling a practice

Our team has in-depth experience in buying and selling practices, and we advise the buyers and sellers. We typically provide advice from the very early stages and deal with matters that are important in terms of practice valuation and other key considerations.

Through our work, we have built a network of customers and other contacts that enables us to help find the right seller or buyer and to help with arranging financing of the actual purchase.

Typically, we oversee and provide guidance in negotiations and assist with:

  • Valuations
  • Negotiations
  • Advice about tax related matters
  • Drafting of contract documents
  • The transfer of ownership


Establishing a collaborative practice

A collaborative or jointly owned practice is a natural way of teaming up with other healthcare professionals. We advise about the commercial and legal aspects of setting up a collaborative platform for healthcare professionals as a jointly owned company, a partnership, or a healthcare centre.

Our advice is typically based on the commercial opportunities of a partnership and the legal matters involved, including the drafting of a contract to serve as the basis for the ongoing partnership.

Advice about specific matters within the healthcare sector may include:

  • Startup, operations, and the buying and selling of practices
  • Provider authorisation numbers
  • Tenant agreements
  • Collective agreements
  • Valuations
  • Negotiations
  • Tax related matters
  • Contract documents
  • Operating a practice as a company
  • Personal data/GPDR and the special challenges related to personal data legislation when processing healthcare data and patient records
