Healthcare & Care Homes

Rix & Kay’s dedicated Care Sector Team covers Sussex and Kent and brings together a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers and other professionals that specialise in supporting and advising both users and providers of healthcare services. Our experience of working with both owners and service users means that we provide considered legal advice that covers all eventualities and takes all perspectives into account.

We have particular expertise in supporting individuals and their families who are already in or are considering moving to a supported care environment.

Our lawyers are considered thought leaders in the sector and maintain influential relationships with a wide range of care sector stakeholders. In 2015 we were awarded a Law Society Excellence Award for our care home thought leadership initiatives.

Our detailed understanding of the challenges care home owners face and the relationship dynamics that exist between care home owner and care home resident, means the team is perfectly placed to provide a seamless service of expert legal advice to all parties.

Our work in the health and social care sector has been recognised by the leading independent research journal, Chambers & Partners, which publishes the most comprehensive guide to law firm capabilities in the UK. Chambers & Partners recognises that Rix & Kay is one of only a few regional law firms in the UK ranked for its expertise in Court of Protection work.

“The team is not only incredibly approachable but provide an holistic service and the way they work with other complementary services is second to none. The focus on understanding clients’ issues and inclusive approach to resolving them with imagination and collaboration is a great model to work with for clients. It goes without saying that their knowledge is first class but the way they listen, support and deal with clients to understand their issues and requirements is really what sets them apart.”
