Our Healthcare team is comprised of leaders in their respective fields who have established excellent reputations in the healthcare sector. We have in-depth knowledge of the legal and commercial issues our clients operating in healthcare face, and our vast experience and cross-disciplinary approach also means we are able to provide innovative solutions and guidance.
We have advised on many new hospital and healthcare projects under private finance initiative (PFI), public-private partnership (PPP), non-profit distributing (NPD) and hub schemes. Beyond that, we help clients ranging from international pharmaceutical companies and life science technology businesses to independent care home operators, pharmacists, dentists and doctors. We also work with banks, financiers and other investors who help fund these organisations.
