Responding to the commercial and regulatory challenges faced by the health and care sector inevitably requires trusts and care providers to examine and adapt their existing contractual relationships and forge new ones with suppliers of services.

At times, this can create the conditions for disputes which may be expensive and time-consuming to resolve and which divert scarce resources. Penningtons Manches’ skilled dispute resolution team offers commercially aware and cost-effective solutions. We work collaboratively with our clients providing them with positioning advice to avoid dispute escalation, mediation and full support during any legal proceedings, whether through the court system or arbitration.

Our team works closely with the firm’s immigration, commercial and employment teams to provide health and care clients with a seamless service that addresses all contractual dispute resolution issues.

The dispute resolution team additionally supports the real estate team giving advice on actual or potential breaches of contract and disputes arising out of landlord and tenant lease covenants.

We increasingly advise on how to prevent these potential issues through audits, better monitoring and risk management systems, and reviewing terms and conditions with suppliers.

We offer expert advice on:

  • resolution of disputes, including by mediation and arbitration
  • advising on contract termination/ severance and recovery of fees/monies outstanding
  • Landlord and Tenant Act proceedings
  • development agreement disputes
  • business structure and shareholder disputes
  • mergers and acquisitions fallout
  • international disputes
  • possession and forfeiture proceedings
  • tenant insolvency
