Our specialism means that not only do we know the law that governs the sector, we also know the nuances that come into play.
There is no textbook way of operating a care business so you need health and social care solicitors that don’t just know the regulations, but how to interpret them in the context of multi-faceted pressures, conflicting stakeholder input, and what the day job looks like for you. And as Care Quality Commission experts, we even offer tailored advice on how to challenge the CQC.
The team at Ridouts is on hand to help navigate you through the complexities that can arise.
