Browne Jacobson in excellent health following major panel re-appointment

7 November 2011

Law firm Browne Jacobson has been re-appointed to a major panel advising health trusts across London and the West Midlands.

The firm was awarded the three year contract by Healthcare Trust Europe (formerly the Healthcare Purchasing Consortium) in partnership with the London Procurement Programme.

The consortium provides purchasing, supply chain and commercial service to more than 100 trusts across London and the West Midlands. Together it spends more than £7 billion on healthcare provision each year.

Browne Jacobson will provide advice to trusts in nine key areas including employment, healthcare, mental health, contract and commercial, NHS governance and public law, corporate finance & PPP/PFI, primary care services and property.

According to latest editions of Legal 500 and Chambers Browne Jacobson has one of the leading healthcare practices in the West Midlands and nationally.

Simon Tait, Head of Health Law at Browne Jacobson, commented:

"We are delighted to be re-appointed to one of the UKs largest healthcare procurement organisations. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to further enhance our reputation as one of the countrys leading providers of legal services to the healthcare sector."

Browne Jacobson is also one of only a handful of panel law firms advising the National Health Service Litigation Authority.
