Retirement Living. Aged Care. Health. Like never before, these three worlds are converging as the 'continuum of care' becomes the new reality. If your business operates in any or all of these worlds, we have you covered.


MinterEllison is a leading Australian law firm with a dedicated national retirement living, aged care and health practice. With a national network of technical and sector specialist lawyers, we have worked as strategic adviser to clients across the nation on retirement living, aged care and health for more than 30 years.

Navigating worlds as complex and fast-changing as retirement living, aged care and health requires advisers who not only have exceptional legal expertise, but who understand emerging market trends, the drivers of regulatory change and the day-to-day issues facing those who operate in those worlds. That’s why our clients value our advice. Put simply, we understand the worlds in which they operate and the challenges they are likely to face – and we have the specialist knowledge to advise them on how to best achieve their goals.
