Commercial contracts advice for health and social care providers

Our experienced commercial contracts solicitors provide advice to health and social care providers on creating business contracts with suppliers, customers or collaborators.

Health and social care providers enter into contracts all the time, and can increasingly find themselves doing so for their core work. Ensuring that your contracts are water-tight is imperative for protecting your charity from being exposed to contractual risks, such as disputes, contract negotiations, data-protection breaches and regulatory compliance. At Anthony Collins Solicitors we work in partnership with you to ensure that all commercial contracts are clear and unambiguous. We draw on our extensive cross-sector and legal knowledge to ensure that all commercial contracts are fit for purpose, compliant with the law and help safeguard against commercial risks.

When negotiating contracts, we work in partnership with you from the outset to provide strategic planning and guidance on relevant rules and regulations. All your contracts need to take account of the legal and regulatory requirements, as well as the “deal” of an organisation. We work with you to make sure you know the implications of all clauses, even if there is little or no scope for negotiation.

Whilst commercial contracts are put in place to safeguard your organisation, if facing a commercial dispute we can work with you to provide clear and practical advice and support through every step of the dispute, from identifying whether there is a case to dispute resolution through mediation or court proceedings.
