Care Homes and Social Care
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.
We are all living longer and over a quarter of our population is now aged over 65. The care sector has grown at the same rate with an increased development of specialist homes and the explosion of domiciliary care at home. This presents considerable commercial opportunities. However, there is an ever increasing regulatory and compliance burden, making the need for specialist legal advice all the more important.
Our legal experts are able to provide concise, practical advice; starting with assistance in the identification purchase/startup 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 run 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.
Our Care Home services include:
- Regulatory and diligence
- Applications and amendments to CQC registrations;
- Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty applications;
- Challenging Regulator inspections reports, cancellations and suspensions of registrations.
Our team offer a free, no obligation meeting to discuss your business and your legal requirements further.
