Our commercial team provides advice on a broad range of commercial transactions and legal issues which affect housing providers.
In addition, we have an established procurement practice, advising clients on all procurement matters, ensuring their processes meet regulatory requirements and mitigate any legal risks. We can also help in the event that anyone challenges your procurement and/or the outcome.
We have extensive experience drafting and negotiating the complete range of commercial and contracting arrangements applicable to registered providers, including:
- facilities management contracts
- outsourcing agreements
- joint venture and collaboration agreements
- confidentiality agreements
- funding agreements
Our specialist commercial dispute resolution team advises housing clients on how to handle commercial disputes, always remaining alive to the need for practical legal advice that reflects the political and reputational impact of the dispute, stakeholder relationships, wider media interest, and the need to protect other on-going relationships. We will tell you whether or not you are in a strong position and help you to formulate a strategy for managing the dispute, be that through negotiation, mediation or litigation.
We have been advising housing clients on all aspects of their businesses for many years. Our unique focus on housing, health and social care means all of our expert lawyers really understand your business. We focus on providing the best result for you by giving practical options and clear guidance. We act for over 150 registered provider clients across the country. The extensive volume and range of work we have undertaken within the sector over the last three decades means we are extremely well-placed to share with you insights we have gleaned from our work and our awareness of emerging trends in the sector.
The first 30 minutes of any advice given on any matter is completely free of charge and our specialism in the sector means we can often solve a problem or give an initial first view during that time without the need for further cost to be incurred.
