Sovereign Healthcare – Working together
Commenting on Gordons, Russ Piper, Chief Executive, Sovereign Healthcare says: “Gordons understand our business priorities and have always supported us without fuss but nonetheless with in-depth expertise. Their lawyers always work together for our benefit.”
Founded in 1873 as a local hospital fund, Sovereign Health Care has been helping to make health care more affordable and accessible for over 135 years. We have supported them in giving advice on the following issues:
- Along with general commercial contract work, drafting and advising on terms and conditions of supply of Sovereign’s unique range of health insurance products and ancillary care support for Sovereign customers, which are sold both direct and via employers. We have reviewed and drafted sale and supplier agreements and prepared and advised on website policies.
- Advice on changes to the group’s constitutional documents. We have also given charity and trust advice, and advice on data protection and other regulatory matters.
- We have given general employment advice, and also advised on commercial property leases.
- Tim Ratcliffe and Duncan Firman have assisted Sovereign in the re-negotiation of important insurance intermediary agreements with a leading insurance company to ensure that Sovereign’s customer relationships are fully protected, and given additional specialist intellectual property advice to protect valuable customer data.
