The expertise we offer to the healthcare sector spans across all our practice areas. This sector is facing increasing challenges brought by a growing and aging population, and the S&B team is very well placed to assist you.

For many years we have had a particular strength in advising developers, funders and operators involved in the sector, including medical, dental, physio and other private clinics, nursery education and elderly care. Our team also has great experience in assisting companies with intellectual property, regulatory, commercial and franchising projects and issues. We have recently assisted clients with regulatory and competition law issues in relation to supplies of healthcare products, public procurement tenders, manufacturing, distribution and outsourcing agreements, and patent licences.
