As a health or social care provider, you need a law firm that understands all the pressures you face. That means a firm that provides expert legal advice and imaginative solutions based on an in-depth knowledge of your sector. It also means a firm that recognises how your business operates and knows what commercial considerations you face.

We have been working in healthcare law for over 20 years and it’s one of our leading areas of expertise. We specialise in the regulation of health and social care services, regularly acting for independent social care providers, independent hospitals and GPs. We also act for children’s homes, schools and fostering agencies. We understand the challenges you face and know that you need proactive, cost-effective legal support.

We are the solicitors of choice for a number of high profile clients and are the leading provider of regulatory due diligence for banks and equity funds investing in the sector. We are also the appointed solicitors for a number of large care providers and care associations nationally, including the National Care Association, Registered Nursing Homes Association, HC-One Limited, Jewish Care, Graham Care, Colten Care, Raphael Medical Centre and Keys Childcare.

As a result of our expertise, our team regularly write for care sector publications and are frequently asked to speak at care sector conferences around the country.

Our specialist healthcare law solicitors have a national reputation, yet, because we are a regional firm, they come at an affordable cost.
