THE FIRM Established in 2004, Eastwoods’ longstanding expertise is in regulatory and disciplinary law, particularly in the healthcare sector, although the firm focuses on the defence of individuals, often professionals, across a much wider range, including in criminal, regulatory and civil matters.

PRINCIPAL AREAS OF WORK
The firm operates solely on the defence side, offering expert advice and representation to individual clients and medical defence organisations. It has significant experience in the health regulatory forums (eg. MPTS, GDC, HCPC, NMC), criminal defence, clinical negligence defence and the full spectrum of healthcare work, eg. Trust disciplinary proceedings, NHS England Performers List hearings, Appeals, Judicial Reviews, Inquests and Inquiries. Eastwoods has expertise in employment cases, including representation of Dr Eva Carneiro in her Employment Tribunal proceedings against Chelsea Football Club and Jose Mourinho. The firm also has extensive experience in sports disciplinary work, having advised and represented individuals in numerous (occasionally high-profile) anti-doping, selection and other sports law matters.
