Fantastic breadth of high-profile work

The healthcare advisory team advise a range of clients and public bodies on various matters relating to mental health law including the Mental Health Act as well as issues surrounding the restraint and detention of patients as well as false imprisonment. The team also advises on governance issues and other regulatory matters which pertain to the social care sector.

This is a highly technical, yet also delicate area of the law requiring a range of skills. It also demands a knowledge of the key mechanisms in this field, such as the Mental Health Review Tribunal, Judicial Review and the Court of Protection.

The team is highly regarded with many noted and ranked in the press such as Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500.

Opportunity to take real step up for right candidate

It is important that this role is seen very much as a step up for the right candidate who is looking ahead towards senior associateship and beyond. Whilst the successful candidate will inherit an active caseload of files, they will also be encouraged to develop their own work and contacts within the sector so strong client care skills are a must as is a readiness to be involved in business development.

Whom they are looking to attract

Given the nature and level of the role as well as where it sits within the wider team, our client is really looking for someone who has cut their teeth in a national practice and already has experience of working with large institutional healthcare clients. That said, the team is looking broadly, so if you feel you meet the criteria, please apply in confidence.
