Care Homes

At Birketts, our Care Home Sector Team understands the unique legal challenges that care home operators face in today’s dynamic regulatory environment.

Our dedicated Care Home Sector Team is committed to providing a comprehensive and tailored range of legal services to private care home providers to ensure the success and compliance of your care facility.   Our multi-disciplinary team brings together non-contentious and contentious legal experts who have deep experience of the care home sector, and who have worked with a number of care home providers at both a strategic and operational level. We have particular experience of advising providers on their obligations under the Health and Social Care Act and Regulations and on issues raised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Our experience and client base

Our care home sector clients include care home groups and single care home providers.

Our clients include Black Swan, Jeesal, owners of Saxlingham House, and Elizabeth Finn/Turn2Us.

Through our Private Client Team, we also offer bespoke, individual legal services to care home residents, regularly advising on money, property and financial affairs, including wills, succession and tax advice. Additionally, the team supports clients who have a failing capacity to deal with their own property and financial affairs.
