The Professionals Practice Group at Siskinds has extensive experience dealing with many different legal issues that optometrists may face throughout their careers. We understand that each stage of an optometrist’s career will attract different legal needs and considerations. The needs of a newer optometrist may be different than those of an optometrist who is nearing retirement from his or her practice. As busy professionals, optometrists may experience rapid change as their careers and personal circumstances advance. Our experience in advising optometrists on a variety of legal issues allows us to offer a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary suite of services tailored to assist optometrists throughout their personal lives, their career, and into retirement.

The specific legal services that we provide, which are tailored to optometrists, include:

Incorporation to Retirement

Professional Corporations

Incorporating an optometry professional corporation can bring significant advantages. We work directly with tax advisors and accountants to ensure the most appropriate corporate structure is established in order to achieve long term goals.

Purchase and Sale of a Practice

An optometry practice is one of the most valuable assets a dentist may own and the decision to sell or purchase a practice is significant. There are many considerations that should be made with respect to the sale or purchase of a practice and we work closely with clients and their advisors to identify the most appropriate strategies to achieve the goals of our client.

Estate Planning for Professionals

As you progress in your career, your estate plan may become more complex. Dual Wills may be used to protect certain eligible assets from estate and administration tax.

Retirement and Succession Planning

The development of an effective succession plan for your optometry practice is a key part of ensuring a smooth transition into retirement.

Other Legal Needs

As you continue to progress in your career, there are many other legal needs you may likely encounter in your professional and personal life.
