Healthcare Lawyers

Specialist healthcare sector legal advice

As healthcare law specialists, with over 25 years' sector experience, we recognise that legal advice cannot be given in isolation. During this time, we have developed exceptional contacts with banks, accountants and other specialist healthcare professionals which enables us to bring more experience to a situation than just our own legal advice.

In January 2017, our Healthcare team merged with Lockharts Solicitors, another leading healthcare specialist. Lockharts focused on supporting healthcare practitioners and organisations throughout England and Wales. Since the firm was founded in April 1995, it established a highly regarded niche practice providing expert legal advice and professional support to healthcare clients.

Our combined team of dedicated healthcare lawyers are ranked in the top tier of Chambers and Partners.
