Eastwoods and Hempsons: Our 2020 Vision
December 20, 2019
2020 will be a particularly exciting year for the Eastwoods team, as on the 27th of January the firm will merge with health, care and regulatory specialists, Hempsons, to create a powerful new force in regulatory and healthcare law.
The firms share a closely-aligned ethos and together we will offer a market-leading service with a wealth of experience defending regulatory, disciplinary, criminal, clinical negligence and personal injury cases, as well as in employment claims, sports law, judicial review, appeals and representation at inquests.
Eastwoods’ senior partner Simon Eastwood said: “At Eastwoods we take great pride in the levels of service and care we give to our clients, and we are delighted to be joining with Hempsons to continue that ethos whilst providing an even stronger offering in our core markets.”
The Eastwoods team will relocate to the Hempsons London office at 100 Wood Street on the 27th of January 2020, with Surjit Dubb and Adam Smith becoming partners in the newly-merged firm, and Simon Eastwood taking up a role as Senior Consultant. Stephen Hooper will move as an Associate.
