Nick Austen

Partner

I am head of healthcare working with clients and banks involved in this sector particularly pharmacy, dentists, GPs, care home operators, operators of independent fostering agencies and domiciliary care providers.   I help to solve difficult transactional and regulatory issues and give consistency of approach over the different (NHS) issues.  Acting for lenders in this sector as well means that I can view transactional risk from different perspectives.

  
In my opinion problems are solved and solutions found 70% by listening and 30% by doing (when the time is right).

  
One of the best things that someone said to me was that I helped make things happen without anyone noticing that my client got his own way.
