Hamza Drabu - DAC Beachcroft
)
Hamza Drabu

Hamza specialises in commercial law, regulatory and governance matters. Hamza has advised on a number of projects with an international focus, including advising clients on inward investment projects into the UK, as well as leading on multi-jurisdictional projects alongside an international team of lawyers.

He has over 12 years’ experience advising clients in the health and social care sector. His key clients include medtech and digital health companies, NHS commissioners and providers, independent operators of health and social care, at-scale providers of primary care services and voluntary sector organisations. He has advised on a broad range of matters, including major strategic procurements, public/private sector collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, regulatory due diligence and highly regulated commercial contracts in the health and social care sector.

Hamza’s experience in advising health and social care sector clients means that he is expert in understanding the regulatory framework that they operate within; his commercial advice is provided in that context.

Relevant experience includes advising:

  • A range of new market entrants seeking to establish digital health solutions in the NHS on commercial, regulatory and strategic matters.
  • A national commissioner on the commercial and procurement aspects in a competitive process for a major strategic procurement process to roll out medical technology across the country, focussed on better access to cancer diagnostics.
  • A medtech company on its contractual arrangements for collaboration with NHS Trusts/FTs for the provision of capital equipment.
  • Various integrated care systems in the NHS seeking to integrate commissioning governance, and allow for a more co-ordinated provision of health and social care services.

Hamza is recognised by the Legal 500 as a “Next Generation Partner”, and is described as “The ‘quick thinking’ Hamza Drabu who ‘understands clients’ needs and designs creative solutions to complex problems’.”

Hamza featured in the 2,000 Days Project, setting out practical ways to overcome legal barriers in order to help the NHS reform health and social care provision. The 2,000 Days Project was reported on in The Guardian.
