We act for several well-known health related charities advising them on a wide variety of issues.
Changes to NHS commissioning arrangements and the advent of personal health budgets have meant that our healthcare clients are having to think carefully about how these new commissioning arrangements will affect their ability to provide frontline services to their beneficiaries and how they can collaborate with others to defeat new competition from corporate and other providers to win public sector funding.
Further changes to the NHS over the short to medium term are likely to bring both uncertainty and opportunities to innovate and the appetite for mergers and restructuring continues as charities strive to get themselves into shape to better respond to future change.
Our multi-disciplinary team of experts is ideally placed to provide support on any issues arising, including charity law and governance, restructuring and mergers, commercial, employment law, property and construction, dispute resolution, intellectual property and data protection matters.
