Aged care services

Australia’s population is in the midst of significant change with both the number and proportion of older people steadily increasing. This change presents unique opportunities and challenges for organisations providing care and accommodation for older people. It is also driving significant change in regulatory oversight and creating an increasingly complex market place for care and services.

Providers of care, services and accommodation need experienced legal advisors with knowledge and expertise who can work with them to develop flexible adaptive solutions.

Disability Services

With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), disability services have taken on an entirely new dimension and importance in lives of the disabled and in operating disability services.

We can help you negotiate the changing landscape of disability services by:

  • reviewing your operations and legal structure
  • establishing new disability services
  • managing mergers and acquisitions
  • managing risk and legal compliance
  • providing insurance advice
  • brokering agreements
  • Handling client complaints, disputes and resolution
  • dealing with disputes with governments or their agencies.
