Khaleej Times Spotlights Senior Counsel Stephen Ballantine’s Analysis of Mental Health Law
Our Senior Counsel, Stephen Ballantine, has been quoted recently by Khaleej Times, sharing insightful commentary on the recently enacted Mental Health Law.
In this article, Stephen provided a specific analysis of the legal aspects surrounding the groundbreaking legislation.
Stephen discussed the potential impact, penalties, and message behind this law.
” These penalties don’t just apply to Mental Heath Facilities or medical professionals but also appear to extend to family members or non-medical professionals,” remarked Stephen. ” in any event- the writing on the wall is clear- make sure that those suffering from mental health conditions are adequately cared for and receive the respect that they deserve- or face the consequences.”
Stephen is head of the firm’s Medical Negligence Practice, and has over two-decades of experience being regarded by many as the leading practitioner in the jurisdiction. If you have any queries regarding the above, or medical malpractice issues more broadly, please speak to Stephen directly.
