About Us

Depth and breadth of expertise and sector knowledge are key to our success

Complementing the traditional health and social care advice we have extended our offerings to cover a full range of legal services delivered by specialist teams.

We offer services geared towards four main sectors to ensure that our clients (both public and private sector), receive the right advice from the right person, at the right time and in a cost efficient manner. Our sector knowledge means that we can quickly get to grips with the key issues facing you and your organisation and work with you to deliver the right solution.

A significant number of our lawyers have dual qualifications, combining medical, dental or nursing qualifications with their legal qualifications and because of this depth of expertise Hempsons is able to be both responsive and highly cost-effective in its approach to answering clients’ needs.

In the NHS alone, Hempsons’ clients include over 180 organisations (Trusts and Foundation Trusts, commissioning bodies and NHS England’s Area Teams. We also act for private healthcare providers and hundreds of individual GPs, dentists and other healthcare-related professionals and practitioners at any one time. The firm’s ‘top 10′ charities practice has in excess of 160 clients, comprising charity and not-for-profit organisations of all sizes.

We are committed to our clients and to understanding them, their needs, objectives and business environments. This is particularly true in helping them manage the challenge and opportunities flowing from the Health and Social Care Act. Our lawyers offer practical interpretations of the changes in law and statutes, so that our clients can add value to their business models with the benefit of our advice and support.
The service we provide is responsive and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At the outset of any project or piece of work we agree with our clients the work to be done, costs and timetable. The advice we provide is commercial and practical and given / written in plain English.
