Unfortunately disputes occur in all businesses. When they do we can provide you with clear advice on where you stand and what remedies are available to you

Care providers can find themselves involved in dispute with local authorities over funding, with health authorities, families of service users and private contractors. We have considerable experience of advising clients in all types of dispute resolution from legal proceedings to mediation and recognise that effective dispute avoidance is as important as dispute resolution.

Accidents are an unfortunate fact of life but they can have serious consequences for the organisations and individuals looking after vulnerable people. As advisers to the care and health sectors with experience in representing clients at Coroners' Inquests and in civil and regulatory proceedings we have seen the benefits of good adverse incident management.

Dealing with service users who are incapacitated or who become so over time is an issue frequently faced by care providers.  Our experience includes working with providers to ensure mechanisims are in place to prevent difficulties arising which could lead to significant issues.  

The legal landscape for regulation of the care sector has changed several times since 2000.  We can offer clients advice on regulatory issues and assist in dealing with issues that arise with the current regulator, the Care Commission and statutory bodies.
