We provide strategic, operational and disputes advice to public sector healthcare providers and regulators worldwide.
Public healthcare is dominated by constant significant change in regulation, planned policy, legal obligations and the quality of care and patient safety. Our wealth of experience advising public sector healthcare providers globally gives us unique insight into the distinct issues that impact their business.
In the UK, our dedicated public healthcare team provides strategically focused and pragmatic advice to a wide range of clients including the NHS Litigation Authority and more than 50 NHS Trusts. We offer a fully integrated practice, covering litigation, projects and construction, real estate, corporate, intellectual property, commercial, IT, regulatory and employment advice.
Internationally, we advise government authorities, administrative and professional bodies on a number of legal and policy decisions that shape the delivery of healthcare services. In the Middle East, we have advised a number of Middle Eastern Government bodies on the formation and redrafting of their healthcare and related insurance laws.
At an operational level, we support our clients on the strategic issues affecting their business including reorganisations, the structure and delivery of corporate transactions, commercial / outsourcing contracts, employment and intellectual property issues. We also advise clients in relation to the legal implications of developing regulations and have advised a number of clients in dealing with Freedom of Information and Data Protection issues.
