Charities and social enterprises operating in the health and social care sector need specialist legal advisers who understand the sector in which they work, the challenges that face them and the complex legal framework in which they operate.
Our clients are diverse, ranging from those that provide residential, nursing, domiciliary and palliative care or provide advice and guidance to their beneficiaries.
Whether your social care organisation works with children or adults, works nationally or regionally, we have a great deal of experience and can draw on over twenty years experience in advising charities and social enterprises in the health and social care sector.
Our clients rely on us for advice that is proactive and pragmatic across the full spectrum of legal services. Our team will work with you to understand your priorities and are able to give sector specific advice to your organisation in the ever changing social care sector.
Our team of lawyers includes those specialising in a diverse range of areas including: charities and governance, "spin outs", regulatory and compliance, employment and immigration, commercial and joint ventures, litigation and property.
All members of our social care team are committed to and passionate about the sector. A number are trustees of social care organisations themselves, which gives them a unique understanding of the clients they act for. We would be delighted to speak to you about your legal needs, however big or small.
We think ahead for all of our social care clients and keep them up to date with the latest law and best practice through our Social Care Law Brief and by running focused training sessions.

The quality of service is strong, but always balanced with a practical viewpoint. Advice is therefore not excessively legalistic and can be implemented more easily than would be possible with a more technical approach.
