Understanding What Legal Private Practice Covers

Understanding What Legal Private Practice Covers

Private practices can specialise in specific areas of law, helping clients with issues related to family or corporate law, for example. These firms can also offer a broad range of legal services, with specialised professionals in different departments to manage various types of legal matters.

Here are a few of the key areas that private practices can cover:

Clinical Negligence

Clinical negligence happens when a healthcare provider doesn’t meet the required standard of care, leading to medical errors, misdiagnoses, or harm to the patient. In these cases, patients will turn to clinical negligence lawyers for help. These lawyers help patients file claims against healthcare providers or institutions to get compensation for the harm they’ve suffered.

Asset Finance

Asset finance is a way for businesses or individuals to secure funding for purchasing assets, often using those assets as collateral. This can include anything from business equipment like machinery to larger assets like ships or aircrafts. Lawyers in asset finance help by structuring and negotiating the financing agreements, ensuring they are legally sound and that all risks are managed.


Private practices specialising in family law help individuals with legal issues related to family relationships, such as divorce, child custody, and adoption. Due to the nature of these cases, lawyers in this specialty need strong interpersonal skills and the ability to handle sensitive situations with empathy and discretion.

Tax & Trusts

Tax and trusts law deals with regulations concerning taxes and the management of trusts and estates. Lawyers specialising in this area help clients plan and manage their finances in a way that complies with tax laws and maximises financial benefits. They often assist in drafting wills, setting up trusts, and advising on estate planning to ensure efficient transfer and protection of assets.

Real Estate

Real estate law, also known as property law, deals with the buying, selling, leasing, and planning of commercial or residential land and buildings. Real estate lawyers focus on issues related to property, from due diligence to financing to handling disputes.


Corporate law deals with the laws and regulations that govern the creation, merging, acquisition, and operation of companies. Corporate lawyers help companies follow these laws, advise on legal issues, and help with agreements and contracts to ensure everything runs smoothly.
