Genevieve Isherwood defends medical malpractice and product liability claims for clients, including those which involve medical products.
Genevieve has wide-ranging experience acting for insurers and insureds on medical negligence and life sciences claims. She has experience in both significant, high-value, high-profile insurance litigation and in smaller value claims. This has included claims involving clinical trials, medical products, addiction and vaccination issues. Alongside litigation, Genevieve handles healthcare regulatory matters, including professional conduct proceedings and inquests.
Genevieve also provides discrete advice to clients in the life sciences arena, including on the setting up and provision of a telemedicine service. Genevieve is mentioned in Legal 500's pharmaceuticals and biotechnology category. She gained valuable understanding of the insurance market working in-house in the claims handling department of a Lloyd's approved Managing General Agency providing underwriting solutions to the health industry. Prior to entering the legal profession Genevieve worked part-time as a healthcare assistant in a mental health hospital, so she has a unique insight into the challenges faced by medical and life sciences insureds.
