Hazel is a specialist healthcare lawyer whose clients include care organisations, pharmacies, GPs, dentists, day nurseries and healthcare banks.



Hazel and the team at Royds Withy King were absolutely outstanding in their diligence and their ability to solve problems when the need arises. There was never any sense of frustration or complexity, just sound legal advice and a willingness to solve any issues as they arose. They were always happy to take our phone calls and e-mails and offer advice and reassurance at what can be a very stressful time.

I really enjoy working with new clients, getting to know their business and helping them to achieve their goals. It's important to me to take time to understand how my clients’ businesses operate so that I can become part of their team, someone they can trust and count on.
