Our Healthcare Law Team adopts a progressive and innovative approach to handling the multitude of governmental regulations, accreditation and compliance requirements faced by all public and private health care providers and suppliers, as well as our handling of sensitive issues concerning patients and treatment.
With intense competition, a reduction in spending, and heightened regulatory scrutiny, the health care industry and patients can rely on our firm’s extensive knowledge and experience in this complex field.
BSG Solicitors LLP represents the health care industry in a wide range of legal matters including operations, compliance, litigation, employment law, partnerships, contract disputes, financing, tax, mergers, acquisitions and affiliations.
BSG Solicitors LLP also undertake work on behalf of patients and guardians to ensure that appropriate treatment is provided. This will also include advising on capacity and consent, access to treatment, insurance disputes and withdrawal of treatment. We also handle the more personal side of health care, including medical negligence and confidentiality.
