DAC Beachcroft: Hamza Drabu

Hamza Drabu

International law firm DAC Beachcroft has appointed partner Hamza Drabu as head of its health and social care team, replacing Nigel Montgomery, who has held the position since 2003.

Montgomery will remain as a partner in DACB’s clinical risk team.

Drabu, who joined DACB in 2012, acts for a wide range of UK and international clients in the health and social care sector, including NHS commissioners and providers, medtech and digital health companies, independent health and social care operators, and voluntary sector organisations.

Drabu said: “Under Nigel’s leadership, DACB has reinforced its position as the leading legal advisor to the health sector. Our team has a stellar reputation, an exceptional client base, and through its work at the forefront of policy developments, consistently gets to the heart of issues that matter to our clients.

“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to build on the solid foundations that Nigel has put in place, and I am looking forward to overseeing the continued growth of our international, national and regional health business while supporting our clients in the delivery of high-quality care.”

Montgomery commented, “I would like to congratulate Hamza on his appointment. He is an astute and vastly experienced lawyer, and having worked closely with him for a number of years, I know he will lead the team brilliantly.”
