Healthcare Solicitors

Our Healthcare team provides a broad range of services to this diverse and enterprising sector. Bringing together a team of specialists from disciplines including property, commercial and litigation, we offer a service dedicated to the needs of the sector and the professionals who work within it.

Importantly, we work closely with our clients' other professional advisers, including banks and accountants, to ensure decisions are not made in isolation that may have unforeseen impacts elsewhere in the business.

The care sector

The provision of care is a fast-moving and ever-changing sector, as an ageing population and strains on Local Authority finances offer both challenges and opportunities for those involved.

Our experience covers care homes, nursing homes and centres for those with particular medical requirements as well as working with domiciliary care providers.

With a commercial approach, we take into account the fact that there are many external pressures and will work hard with business owners and other stakeholders to achieve practical and realistic outcomes.
