social care


Social care for both children and adults is a large, dynamic sector, involving public, private and charitable organisations. Changes in statutory frameworks and associated new duties, complex procurement and commissioning practices for local authorities and an active, funded and competitive private sector, all mean that providers face a breadth of legal challenges. Our multi-disciplinary team understands your environment and the law. Our goal is to ensure we meet the differing objectives of all providers.

what we do...

  • Our clients - over 50 local authorities, registered charities, residential and domiciliary care providers, insurers, sports governing bodies, religious organisations and inspectorates including the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales.
  • Over 20 years' experience - we act for inspectorates, conduct child and vulnerable adult protection audits and policy reviews and attend risk management committees.
  • 20 dedicated lawyers - based in Nottingham, Exeter, London and Birmingham, the largest specialist teams in private practice.
