The finalists have been announced for the HealthInvestor Awards 2022 and Lester Aldridge is proud to have been shortlisted in the category Legal Advisors of the Year – Private.
The Lester Aldridge Healthcare team is nationally recognised for its expertise, with over 20 years of experience in the health and social care sector. They advise on safeguarding matters, defending regulatory enforcement action, coroner’s inquests, health and safety, environmental and criminal prosecutions, contractual disputes, business sales and acquisitions, and are market leaders in regulatory due diligence.
Laura Guntrip, Partner and Head of Healthcare at Lester Aldridge, said: “I am delighted that we have once again been named as finalists for this prestigious award, which recognises our well-established reputation for representing care providers nationally for many years. The last two years have been incredibly challenging for the sector and my colleagues and I have worked hard to support our clients navigate the numerous challenges they have faced. I am proud of the team for their hard work and the excellent outcomes often achieved for our clients and pleased that those efforts have received recognition.”
The team is ranked in both independent legal directories Chambers and The Legal 500. One client interviewed by the recently published The Legal 500 UK 2022 said: “This is truly a unique organisation. It took a year of searching to find a solicitor to challenge organisations such as CQC and the local authorities. Their knowledge proved such that government agencies conceded the judgements they had made were unjust and without substance. They appear to be alone in their field.”
The HealthInvestor Awards promote excellence and recognise innovation in the independent healthcare sector and are regarded as the most prestigious awards ceremony in the industry. This year the awards take place on 8 June at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London.
