Former Blakes partner moves to Thomson Playford

Former Blakes partner moves to Thomson Playford

Thomson Playford Cutlers has bolstered its health and aged care group with the appointment of a former Blake Dawson partner.

THOMSON Playford Cutlers has bolstered its health and aged care group with the appointment of a former Blake Dawson partner.

Ken Ramsay has more than 35 years experience in the practice area and has worked in senior positions in other major firms, including Blake Dawson, before his move.

The firm says the appointment precedes future growth in the sector in the wake of health reform.

Ramsay has previously advised health and aged care clients in the public sector, including the NSW government, as well as the private sector and not-for-profit organizations.

“[He] has played a prominent role at the coalface of the health and aged care sectors over a number of years and across significant periods of change and we are delighted to secure his services,” said Thomson Playford national corporate group partner, Lucinda Smith.

“In particular, [Ramsay] brings an intimate knowledge of how the structural and funding models work and that will be invaluable in responding to reforms in the health sector nationally,” she said.

She said his appointment places the firm in a good position to provide advice on the implications of the health reforms being proposed at both state and national level.

On top of this, the firm expects a boom in the aged care and retirement village sector in Australia over the next 20 years, as the population ages, she said.

“As demand increases, our knowledge of the regulatory and capital funding issues facing the sector will be invaluable in helping our clients to plan their future business around government and community expectations,” Smith said.
