Work Department

Mental Health and Healthcare Litigation

Position

Stephen is a partner who's work covers some very technical legal areas but the overall theme is ‘dispute resolution’. He always looks for pragmatic solutions, without compromising your position. Where appropriate, Stephen’s advice on the law, options and risks will bear in mind any long term ongoing therapeutic relationship and that the resolution of acute problems needs to support, not undermine that.

In 2009 Stephen obtained his Master’s Degree in Mental Health Law. His final project brought together his mental health and capacity experience by considering the problems in developing the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. Please contact Stephen if you would like a copy.

The 'friendly, approachable and knowledgeable multi-disciplinary' health and social care group at Hempsons are considered to be 'one of the leading firms in this practice area'.Adrian Parker heads up the 'first class team', which handles corporate and commercial transactions, health and social care advice, employment law, healthcare litigation and real estate issues. It is instructed by healthcare providers, social care clients and not for profit organisations, including the Primary Care Commissioning Community Interest Company. The 'commercial and pragmatic' Crispin Pettifer, alongside the 'diligent' associate Oliver Crich, advised Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust on its procurement process for a strategic estates partnership. In another highlight, the 'amazing problem solver' Ross Clark led a team instructed by Cheshire Local Medical Committee to deliver a practice development programme to over 600 GPs and their practices, involving advice on preparation for CQC inspections, the GDPR and procurement. Also recommended are the 'hugely experienced' Stephen Evans and Adam Hartrick particularly in matters related to mental health, and inquests, respectively.
