DACB makes third hire this year to its health practice

International law firm DAC Beachcroft (DACB) has appointed regulatory partner Gemma Brannigan to its health, care and public law team.

Brannigan joins from Clyde & Co where she acted predominantly for NHS Trusts, NHS Resolution and private healthcare insurers. Prior to that she was a partner at Capsticks. 

She brings particular specialism in inquests, inquiries and investigations in the health and social care sectors and has advised on a number of high-profile cases.

‘The healthcare sector remains under great pressure, which makes the handling of significant challenges increasingly important to ensure our clients can continue to deliver safe and high-quality care.  A regulatory partner of Gemma’s calibre is therefore a fantastic addition to our very talented team,’ said Nigel Montgomery, partner and head of health at DACB.

This is the third partner hire to the firm’s health practice this year; commercial health partner Oliver Crich joined DACB in April and charity law partner Emma-Jane Dalley joined the firm in February.
