Under most construction contracts, the contractor takes on the ground conditions risk. However, a recent case has demonstrated that the risk can fall on the employer.
With extensive experience of representing those in the health and social care sector Sarah (who is a solicitor advocate) has undertaken complex inquests, as well as Court of Protection and mental health work, predominantly for NHS trusts, CCGs and the private care sector. Sarah has acted as an advocate in many disciplinary tribunals, the High Court and represented clients involved in regulatory proceedings, including prosecutions and attendance at Police and Evidence Act (PACE) interviews and challenges to the CQC.
Matt Wort, partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors and sector lead for health and social care, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Sarah to the team. Sarah brings a wide range of experience with her which will help us to continue to support our clients through their regulatory challenges at a time when a confident assertive approach will be crucial."
Sarah added: “I’m really looking forward to working with the team at Anthony Collins Solicitors, and being part of a firm with a mission to improve lives, communities and society. The team is already involved in some really interesting work and I can see how my experience will help enhance the service already on offer.”
