Adam Weston

Experience

  • As a partner at BLM since May 2018, I act for healthcare professionals and businesses in regulatory, disciplinary, inquest and criminal matters.
  • My regulatory cases bring me before the GMC, GDC, NMC, GOC, GPhC and HCPC as well as NHS England and NHS Hospital Trusts. I am routinely instructed in lengthy and complex investigations into serious allegations of misconduct, dishonesty and clinical incompetence and am frequently involved in CQC investigations on behalf of registered managers and organisations.
  • I head the London medical crime team for BLM and I defend healthcare professionals in cases involving gross negligence manslaughter, neglect, medicines act offences, sexual assault, common assault, fraud against the NHS, racially motivated public order offences, perverting the course of justice and indecent images of children. I also routinely advise clients in relation to DBS matters following the closure of criminal and regulatory investigations.
  • I am recognised as a Next Generation Partner in Legal 500 2021.
