UK Top-100 law firm Bevan Brittan has appointed four new Partners in its national Independent Health & Social Care team, as the practice grows from strength to strength.
Andrew Spicer, Anna Davies, James Gutteridge and Letitia Winterflood-Blood have all been recognised in the firm’s latest round of promotions, which has seen 28 colleagues promoted across the business’s legal departments.
The moves follow the recent promotion of Partner Sarah Skuse as Head of the Independent Health & Social Care Real Estate team.
Corporate expert Andrew Spicer advises on a range of corporate M&A and restructuring transactions and joint ventures, while commercial and public law specialist Anna Davies supports organisations on a wide variety of complex patient service issues at the interface between the NHS and independent sector, including social care contracts. James Gutteridge is an employment lawyer with particular expertise in advising health clients and Letitia Winterflood-Blood focuses on commercial ventures within the national and international healthcare sector.
The appointments come at a time of significant and rapid growth for Bevan Brittan’s Independent Health & Social Care team. The abundant wealth of expertise has contributed to repeated and prestigious awards recognition, with the team winning the HealthInvestor ‘Transactional’ Legal Advisor Award for the last three years. Last year, they also won the HealthInvestor ‘Private’ Legal Advisor Award.
Vincent Buscemi, Partner and Head of Independent Health & Social Care at Bevan Brittan, said: “It is an exciting time in the independent health and social care sector and we are committed to ensuring that our clients have access to the best possible specialist expertise that they need to thrive.
“Our team has gone from strength to strength in recent years and these well-deserved appointments are both an indicator of success and our ambition. Andrew, Anna, James and Letitia have incredible skills and proven track records in their respective fields and they all have a vital role to play as we develop our offering in the health and care sectors.
“We are delighted to have them on board and know that their invaluable contributions will make a huge difference to the team and – more importantly – the clients that we support.
