In a sector faced with significant and rapid changes in the law, it’s vital to have the support of a team that understands your industry as much as you do. Our health and social care team is among the most knowledgeable and experienced in the business. We’re passionate about supporting businesses across the healthcare, social care, dental, veterinary and pharmacy sectors, and we’re constantly refining our services to meet the needs of a changing industry.
Over the past four years, we’ve acted on over 200 transactions in the healthcare market, delivering a total deal value of over £300 million. We understand first hand the challenges providers are facing and we can help across the board, delivering support around business transactions, property purchases, employment and HR issues, and regulatory compliance. No matter your specialism or the challenge, we promise to give you straightforward advice that will ultimately help you improve your service.
The breadth of health and social care organisations we work with is far reaching. For example, we’ve helped private equity backed platforms with the acquisition of dental businesses, while acquirers of veterinary practices recommend us as a preferred legal adviser. Meanwhile, our partner Rebecca Leask sits on the board West Midlands Care Association and we operate a dedicated legal helpline for the Association. Thanks to close relationships like these, we fully appreciate both the unique culture and challenges of the sector.
