Health law

With over 100 health and social care lawyers advising our broad NHS and independent sector health and care client base, we’re proud to be one of the largest specialist teams in the sector. And we’re proud to be considered one of the leading advisers to health bodies in England and Wales.

We want to be an extension of your in-house legal and management teams. To be your first port of call, not only on important strategic matters but day-to-day issues too.

The fact that we know the health sector inside out means we’re armed with expertise on everything from patient-specific issues, information law queries and major investigations through to the full range of corporate and commercial issues any public or independent sector health client could face.

Across five locations, we offer comprehensive national coverage and are particularly noted for our out-of-hours support through a 24/7 healthcare helpline.

Our client base includes NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts, commissioners and major national providers.

Our approach sets us apart. Working with Browne Jacobson you’ll have a partner lead, responsible for managing our relationship with you and ensuring a consistently high-quality and personal service. This partnership approach enables us to really understand our clients, delivering what they need, when they need it.
