Health and social care providers are operating in a very challenging financial environment with an increased focus on regulation. As such they need specialist legal support to help build thriving organisations.
Anthony Collins Solicitors acts as an expert for many leading adult health and social care service providers. We specialise in helping the vulnerable, whether that is due to age, mental or physical capability, mental health problems or consequences of addiction. Our services range from governance advice, employment and property development to dealing with any regulatory issues that may arise.
From regulation to property and employment to governance, our expertise in health and social care legal practices is wide and varied. In a large sector, everything from judicial reviews to the Human Rights Act has to be considered. Our goal is to make health and social care law as easily accessible as possible.
One of the most important parts of health and social care, and the legal processes that surround the sector, is the regulation of the parties involved. Regulatory action can significantly damage your reputation. We work both reactively to help with management of regulatory issues and proactively to help you get the governance right in the first place to ensure you are well led.
We also have a team of corporate and commercial lawyers doing deals in the sector. Our expertise in governance, collaboration, mergers, procurement, state aid and commercial contracts means that we cover the wide range of potential corporate and commercial questions you, as a social care provider, might encounter. We draw on our experience of contracting arrangements with local authorities and the NHS, whether it is a search for funding or potential development projects - we have professionals who are always more than happy to help. Our knowledge of the sector enables us to position you to get the best possible deal.
Our experts in health and social care property specialise in development projects, construction contracts, buying and selling care homes, care home management, leasehold, and property disputes. Our role is to simplify the law for you, making it clear and easy to understand so you can make the most out of your property and simplify the development process.
Our health and social care solicitors have expertise in managing change, resolving disputes, advising on TUPE and National Minimum Wage issues in particular. As well as people, health and social care can enter the realm of intellectual property. In this case we have experts in organisation name and brand assets, copyright and licensing.
Due to our wide variety of expertise and in-depth knowledge of the sector, no matter what your query or reason is for contacting us, we would be delighted to help you.
