06 Jul 2017 - Simon Palmer - Business Broker Vet Practice Sales

One of the greatest fears buyers of veterinary practices have is that they will pay significant money for goodwill and there will be a mass exodus of clients when they take over. To mitigate this risk, any buyer needs to seriously look at the reasons why a client frequents the practice, and give them no reason to want to change their behaviour.

23 May 2017 - Simon Palmer - Vet Practice Sales

Most people would acknowledge that it is inappropriate for a judge to preside over a case involving a family member. If they did, their decision could be influenced by their personal relationship with the person involved in case, rather than the facts.

As an activist, he was probably the most high-profile and well-known conscientious objector to the Vietnam War. As a sports personality, he was renowned for his eloquence, and was near-universally loved.

Steve hated the house and wanted it torn down so that he could build a new house for his family that was more suitable.  There was only one problem - the old house was a 1926 Spanish colonial-style house, loved by preservationists for its historical significance - they wanted it preserved for future generations.
