International law firm DAC Beachcroft is pleased to announce the appointment of regulatory partner Gemma Brannigan to its market-leading health, care and public law team.
Gemma joins DACB from Clyde & Co where she acted predominantly for NHS Trusts, NHS Resolution and private healthcare insurers, having previously been a partner at Capsticks.  She brings particular specialism in inquests, inquiries and investigations in the health and social care sectors and has advised on many of the highest profile cases.


Nigel Montgomery, partner and head of health at DACB, comments, “The healthcare sector remains under great pressure, which makes the handling of significant challenges increasingly important to ensure our clients can continue to deliver safe and high quality care.  A regulatory partner of Gemma’s calibre is therefore a fantastic addition to our very talented team.

“The breadth of expertise within our team already provides an unparalleled understanding of the healthcare market, but we continue to invest in our business to meet the needs of our clients both now and in the future.” 

Gemma adds, “I am very much looking forward to being a part of DACB’s already outstanding offering in the healthcare market.  The team’s strength in depth and collaborative approach offers great opportunities to support clients in their growing ambitions.”

This latest appointment is the third partner hire to the firm’s health practice this year; commercial health partner Oliver Crich joined DACB in April and charity law partner Emma-Jane Dalley joined the firm in February.

DACB is widely recognised as the leading strategic, commercial and regulatory legal advisor to the health and social care sector in the UK and internationally, providing innovative and practical support to more than 300 healthcare clients on the full breadth of legal services.
