Ryan Fitzpatrick is an Associate Solicitor in the Company/Commercial department at Bell & Buxton.

Ryan has accumulated a wealth of experience in the healthcare sector, in particular, dealing with the sale and purchase of dental practices, partnerships, expense sharing arrangements and incorporations. He acts for both NHS and private dental practices along with a broad range of other clients from small part-time sole practitioners to large multiple site corporate groups.

His approach is client-driven and commercial. Ryan establishes what the client wants to achieve and then works tirelessly to reach the desired conclusion. Ryan’s work grows by virtue of personal recommendations, which, in turn, flows from the exceptional level of service that he provides to his clients.

Having worked previously in a similar role locally, Ryan will be using his industry experience and regional knowledge to help businesses of all sizes strike effective deals.

Ryan handles all types of corporate and commercial matters, including:

  • mergers, acquisitions and disposals of companies and assets;
  • selling and buying GP surgeries and care homes;
  • corporate finance;
  • handling business start-ups and management buy-outs/ins;
  • setting up joint ventures and partnerships and negotiating corporate restructuring; and
  • drafting shareholder agreements, terms and conditions of business, distribution and agency agreements and other commercial contracts.

He has experience in non-contentious construction matters, advising on various bespoke and industry standard forms of appointment.  He has assisted clients with negotiating and drafting JCT contracts, collateral warranties, consultant appointments and forms of novation.

Ryan gained his law degree from The University of Sheffield and completed his professional legal training at Nottingham Law School.

In his spare time, Ryan enjoys travelling, reading and socialising with friends. He is a keen sportsman and likes to swim and play football. He is also a member of a clay pigeon shooting club and his local gym.
