Legal Advice for Healthcare Organisations
One of the largest healthcare teams in the South East with over 35 years’ experience of the sector.
As one of the South East’s largest providers of legal and HR advice to healthcare organisations for over 35 years, we help our clients to achieve their goal of improving the standard of healthcare provision for service users and patients. We understand the importance of easy access to practical, cost effective and specialist legal advice and our expertise covers the whole spectrum of advice to healthcare providers encompassing healthcare law, employment, property, partnership, corporate, commercial, construction and dispute resolution issues.
Our healthcare solicitors have worked with NHS Trusts, GPs and primary care providers, private hospitals and clinics, and those in the care sector, for the last 35 years. Our approach is intended to enable clients to:
- Stay focused on their services– We understand the pressures healthcare organisations face and our work aims to deliver timely, clear and targeted advice with the aim of ensuring value for money.
- Governance focussed – our clients must maintain the highest standards of governance and compliance with regulatory requirements and our advice gives practical guidance on the application of these issues.
- Clarity on costs– With our transparent pricing options, you will have choice over the cost structure that best suits your business and your needs, giving you peace of mind that there will be no surprises along the way.
- Fast and efficient communication– With a dedicated lead relationship partner, direct lines of communication to the team and advice delivered without the legal jargon, we have made accessing legal services easy, understandable and efficient.
Healthcare solicitors with recognised expertise
Our Healthcare team is currently ranked in the top tier by leading legal directory, the Legal 500 and in 2018 the team was shortlisted for the ‘Legal Services Provider of the Year’ award at the General Practice Awards.
Our lawyers combine their experience in the healthcare sector with their individual expertise in their practice area; this strength in depth means we are best placed to help you and your healthcare business face the future with confidence.
The team is led by Catherine Daw and Ash Jilani, taking over from John Sheath who spearheaded the inception of the Healthcare team and developed it to become a successful regional market leader. John has been widely recognised and awarded throughout his career, illustrated by his Legal 500 hall of fame ranking for 2021 which recognises lawyers for their sustained excellence and consistent praise from clients.
