DAC Beachcroft named ‘Legal Provider of the Year’ for outstanding support to the health sector

Published 14 September 2021

International law firm DAC Beachcroft has won two awards for the ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Public’ and ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Private’ at this year’s HealthInvestor Awards.

The HealthInvestor Awards, which were announced on 13 September 2021, celebrate excellence and recognise innovation in the healthcare sector. This year’s awards recognise teams that have made an outstanding contribution to healthcare between March 2020 – March 2021.

DAC Beachcroft was awarded two accolades, firstly for ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Public’, which aims to highlight exceptional legal support to the NHS, local authorities, regulators and other public sector organisations. Secondly, it was awarded ‘Legal Advisor of the Year – Private’, which celebrates exceptional legal support to the independent sector.

Nigel Montgomery, Head of Health at DAC Beachcroft, comments, “We are delighted that we have won these awards. At a time when the health sector has faced exceptional challenges it has been a real privilege to have witnessed the fantastic response of our health and social care clients and the tremendous dedication of all of their people.”

Some of the comments from the judges include:

“What DAC Beachcroft has done over the past year exhibits considerable public purpose, very strong external partnership and collaboration, commercial acumen, agile internal organisational culture, strong and imaginative strategising and notable public policy analysis. All highly commendable, indeed exemplary.”

“DAC Beachcroft in partnership with its clients has enabled them to continue to manage their day-to-day operations during a time of significant crisis, and helped them meet their strategic needs with an eye on the future. While the environment for its clients has been challenging, it has taken opportunities to progress strategic change in its own organisation.”

“The NHS nationally and through its various arms-length bodies has made extensive use of DAC Beachcroft, and has not been disappointed. In response, DAC Beachcroft has shown the full breadth of its public sector insight and advisory capacity. The team is to be congratulated on the speed and depth of its response and for being a key part of a national health response that required a set of first-and-final legal solutions to enable momentum to be maintained. DAC Beachcroft rose to that challenge superbly. An excellent year.”

DAC Beachcroft is widely recognised as one of the leading strategic, commercial and regulatory legal advisers to the health and social care sector in the UK and internationally. Last year, the firm was awarded the ‘Crisis Management Firm of the Year’ award at the British Legal Awards for its exceptional support to the NHS at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The firm was also named ‘Legal Services Provider of the Year’ at the HSJ Partnership awards for its work with Helpforce, to design and manage a youth volunteering programme for both NHS hospitals and local schools.
