We have a highly skilled team of commercial lawyers who are experienced in the care sector and have a passion to support care providers in running efficient and compliant businesses.
The Care Team is able to provide concise, practical advice; starting with assistance in the identification purchase/start-up of a care business, guiding you through the regulatory maze during your ownership and, ultimately, assisting in your exit from the sector.
Specialist Care Home solicitor Neil Cook leads the Care Team. Neil is not only an experienced commercial solicitor, but he has also owned and operated a Care Home, giving him the benefit of personal expertise and knowledge of the legal issues and day to day challenges which face care home owners. This experience puts Neil in a unique position to provide legal and commercial advice to Care Home owners. Neil has also been recognised by The Legal 500 (UK 2016) and is described as having ‘a great understanding of how care home sector clients want their commercial work undertaken’.
