Multidisciplinary legal support for care homes.

In this section

Our multidisciplinary care homes team assists with the full range of legal issues that care homes face, including during critical times.

When faced with a CQC (Care Quality Commission) notice or investigation, immediate action is needed. Our team specialises in assisting care home operators and managers to navigate these situations sensitively and effectively.

We also advise on care sector corporate transactions, professional discipline and healthcare regulatory law, employment and immigration, health and safety, commercial and intellectual propertydata protection, litigation and real estate matters.

We'll be delighted to arrange a free, no obligation discussion with you.

Our experience

Our team is led by Matt Coles, a solicitor with over 20 years’ experience. He represents care homes across the UK, from small organisations to multi-site operators. A background in policing and as a former Prosecutor with the Crown Prosecution Service continues to serve Matt well when assisting clients dealing with investigations, regulators and enforcement actions.

He gained a personal insight into the care sector following his mother’s years in a specialist dementia home. Here, Matt saw first-hand the excellent and demanding work undertaken by carers on a daily basis. This experience helps him to see matters from all perspectives and appreciate the difficulties and conflicts that these can sometimes bring.

Vastly experienced in dealing with the CQC and local authorities, Matt also advises in relation to crisis management and reputational protection issues, as well as coroner requests for information and preparation for (and attendance at) inquests.

Thank you so much to David Seddon, Graeme Hughes, Fern Bullock and Clara Moir for all your hard work, help, advice and support during a very long-winded and difficult process in selling our care home. We absolutely couldn't have gotten here without you all — you're simply the best lawyer team in the world.
