Blake Morgan Health experts are awards finalists
Specialists at law firm Blake Morgan have earned the firm a place as a finalist for a national award which recognises expertise in advising the health sector.
The firm’s health and social care team is in the running for the title of Legal Advisors of the Year in the HealthInvestor Awards 2015.
The award nomination is in the transactional (public) category, which recognises the achievements of legal teams that focus on contracts and processes in the public sector.
Awards will be presented following a dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane on Wednesday, June 10.
Blake Morgan has an extensive range of clients in health and social care including central government departments, national regulators, NHS commissioning bodies, not-for-profit care providers, GPs and GP Federations.
Blake Morgan is a leading provider of external legal services to the healthcare sector in Wales, and acts for NHS Wales under the NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership contract.
The firm has been involved in several significant and high-profile projects – most notably it advised administrators Ernst and Young on the dissolution of the controversial Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust following an inquiry into poor care at Stafford Hospital.
Bruce Potter, Blake Morgan co-chairman, a senior partner in the firm’s corporate team who has extensive experience of working in the healthcare sector, said: “The HealthInvestor Awards are widely regarded as among the most prestigious accolades in the healthcare sector and to be listed as a finalist against some very tough competition is a considerable achievement.
“Our healthcare specialists have been recognised for a number of years for their expertise in this sector and this past year has seen a significant growth and acceleration of the firm’s healthcare strategy.
“We are delighted that our work on significant major projects has been recognised in this way and we are very much looking forward to the ceremony in June.”
