Two lawyers with extensive experience of health and social care have been appointed partners at Royds Withy King.
James Sage and Hazel Phillips join the Health and Social Care team from Burroughs Day in Bristol.
James, whose work is described as ‘excellent’ by the Legal 500, said: “I am extremely pleased to have joined Royds Withy King and its successful Health and Social Care team. We can provide clients with a complete legal service which gives them peace of mind that they are fully compliant so they can concentrate on doing what they do best – running successful businesses delivering the highest levels of care and support.”
Their appointments signal further expansion for the team which was strengthened recently through the appointments of senior associate Aman Hart and associate Ruth Bowen.
James specialises in providing advice on employment law, CQC registration and compliance and safeguarding. He also regularly speaks at regional and national care conferences.
Hazel advises on CQC registration; challenging CQC inspection reports and enforcement action; sales, mergers and acquisitions; partnership agreements; safeguarding, fees and funding.
She said: “I am delighted to be part of a team which puts clients at the centre of everything they do and provides a personal and service-orientated experience. I really enjoy meeting new clients, getting to know them and helping them to achieve their goals. It’s important to me to take time to understand how my clients’ businesses operate so that I can become part of their team, someone they can trust and count on, and this is very much reflected in the ethos of Royds Withy King.”
