Meet our Client- Gavin Lau, new owner of Amcal Max at Skygate

The health sector is renowned for its strict regulations and increasingly complex legislation. For this reason, people like Gavin Lau, the new owner of the Amcal Max pharmaceutical outlet at Skygate in Brisbane turn to Bennett & Philp Lawyers’ Health Law Team.                   

Gavin had always dreamed of owning his own pharmacy and that dream was realised with the help of the Bennett & Philp’s Special Council Maurice Hannan and Lawyer Lesley Leong with the purchase of the Skygate Amcal pharmacy last year.


Gavin at his Pharmacy

In assisting Gavin, who migrated to Australia from Malaysia 10 years ago, the Health Team ensured the purchase of the business, negotiation of the franchise, licensing agreement, consents and the assignment of the lease from the landowner, Brisbane Airport Corporation went smoothly.

In addition, Maurice Hannan and Lesley Leong were successful in applying for the relevant Queensland Health and Medicare approvals and change of ownership requirements for Gavin to open the doors for business on his dream pharmacy.

Gavin can now concentrate on looking after his many customers and their health concerns.

If you are looking to purchase or sell a pharmacy or are needing to relocate and obtain approval from the Australian Community Pharmacy Authority, call Maurice Hannan or Lesley Leong on +61 7 3001 2999.
