Rushport Advisory has opened a new office in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The new office will provide the firm with better access to clients in the region as demand for the firm’s specialised pharmacy services has increased.
Rushport Advisory is a boutique pharmacy, healthcare property development and LIFT, and pharmacy transactions consulting practice. The firm was founded in 2011 by Conor Daly, and is situated on Barnes High Street in London, with an additional office operated in Bolton (led by John Devlin).
The firm has, in recent years, been actively securing pharmacy licences for clients across the UK through the various ‘control of entry’ regulations, which grants them permission to open new pharmacies or relocate existing ones. Besides securing licences, the consulting firm has also been actively advising private equity, investors and administrators, and has worked on some of the largest pharmacy transaction deals in recent history.
As part of the firm’s expansion across the UK it recently opened a new premise in Belfast. The new office is situated besides the Belfast City Airport. The reason for the expansion is to increase its presence in an area of the UK that has seen considerable work for the firm, allowing staff to meet clients directly.
“The first ever new pharmacy contract that we won was in Northern Ireland on 10th September 1997. This was also the first pharmacy contract ever approved inside a supermarket in Northern Ireland and we had to take the case to court before it was finally approved after nearly 3 years of trying!,” explains Conor Daly, the firm’s Managing Partner. “Since that time we have acted on behalf of many different pharmacy owners applying for, or objecting to, pharmacy applications or relocations within the province.”
