Professional Discipline and Regulatory

We provide specialist regulatory advice to individuals and corporates from a range of backgrounds and industries. Investigations and proceedings in this area take many forms and we have lawyers available to immediately assist regulated individuals and organisations. Our team of lawyers have represented all different professionals including doctors, dentists, suppliers of medicinal products, teachers and those within the financial sector.

Your profession is important to you. So, being subjected to regulatory investigations and proceedings is stressful and intrusive. We understand this and you will find our approach empathetic, and focused on achieving the best possible outcome for you.

Our specialist lawyers can help navigate and guide you through the law, procedure and tactics at any stage in the investigation or proceedings. We encourage our clients to instruct us at the outset to ensure the best possible handling of any investigation, especially in an era where regulators have more powers and are increasingly proactive in their approach.
