Reshma is an Associate Director and regulatory lawyer specialising in health and safety and healthcare regulatory matters.
She is experienced in advising international businesses on how to proactively manage health and safety risks in their organisations.
Reshma has a particular focus on advising businesses in the technology, healthcare and financial services sectors.
Reshma regularly supports international businesses on how to approach the management of health and safety risks within their organisations, applying her experience of navigating regulatory investigations and enforcement. This includes advising on leadership and corporate governance structures and specific risk topics including hybrid working, work-related stress, and mental health and wellbeing strategy development.
In her healthcare work, as well as advisory services, Reshma supports clients facing complex overlapping investigations involving multiple regulators spanning inquests, investigations by the police, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework and safeguarding matters.
She regularly advises businesses innovating in the healthcare space on regulatory matters relevant to product design, launch and procurement. She guides her clients through ongoing compliance with CQC and other regulatory requirements. She uses this experience to advise on the structuring of corporate transactions to take into account the regulatory framework on clinical risk, patient quality and safety.
Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world
The world of work has evolved in recent years moving away from traditional office-based working models towards permanent hybrid or remote ones. Changes in working practices and activities give rise to new health and safety risks and change the way that health and safety leadership and oversight works. I can advise on how systems need to adapt to address risks.
Businesses are also increasingly being held to account by employees regarding their approach to health and safety, including on work-related stress and mental health. ESG agendas mean more clients are focusing on this space (the 'S' in ESG) and recent world events have led to clients placing greater value on H&S management systems as part of business continuity, recruitment, and talent retention strategies.
Digital innovation in the Life Sciences and Healthcare sector is bringing changes to traditional models of healthcare service delivery. I can support clients to apply regulatory requirements to new technologies and ways of working.
Reshma has been incredible to work with. She has become an extension of our legal team and is exceptionally diligent, commercially oriented and pro-active in her approach. Her specialist expertise and attention to detail has been invaluable to the business. It’s been great working with and learning from her – she is very personable and her gentle leadership has been perfect for the nature of our sensitive investigation. She is also a lovely and kind person – our team trust her implicitly.
