Effective corporate activity requires constant vigilance and evaluation. You have to be ready to adapt to changing regulations, strategic opportunities and emergent threats.

After more than thirty years working with leading social care organisations and trade bodies I understand what good looks like. I can work closely with you to help you take opportunities, rise to your challenges and help you navigate complex regulatory and business environments.

As a consultant, I provide my expertise and experience to your business focussed entirely on you, without the costly or sluggish bureaucracy of professional firms. I will work closely with you, your team and my network to evaluate the best approach and make sure you can access the resources and expertise you need to execute what is required.

Some of the areas where I can provide support include:

  • Strategy reviews
  • Development projects
  • Mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • Large-scale tenders
  • Fee disputes or challenges
  • Investigations and regulatory action
  • Borrowing and funding – traditional and investment

Unlike a large firm, I can provide the close attention and tailored support which your organisation deserves – and which delivers the best outcome for you. As well as business and governance advice, I can operate as an extension of your team to embed better practices, be a sounding board for ideas and offer expert advice based on extensive legal and business experience.

These additional services include but are not limited to:

  • Training and development of your team
  • Network access and navigation
  • Informal consulting and liaison with legal advisors
  • Governance reviews
  • Fee related advice (public funded and private)
  • Managing relationships with CQC and other regulators
  • Funding for development or acquisitions
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Charity regulation and best practice
  • Property development and management for care services
