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

Hazel’s expertise also includes commercial contracts and she regularly provides advice to clients on drafting and negotiating on the commercial aspects of their projects or operations.



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.

Dave Nickels, Drurys Pharmacies Limited

Thank you very much! A huge thank you to you and your team for your patience and professionalism in what was at time an interesting journey! You were great to work with as I thought you would be and I am grateful you took me on as a client.

Sandra Joyce, Sandringham Care
