Are you facing a professional disciplinary investigation involving your professional regulator or another body? Have you received allegations suggesting that you may be guilty of gross misconduct or that your practice falls below professional ethical standards? We have a team of experienced defence professional discipline and misconduct lawyers who can help you.
We have represented professionals from wide and diverse backgrounds including doctors, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, opticians, paramedics, solicitors, barristers, accountants, chartered surveyors, teachers, students, police officers, social workers, and insolvency practitioners. Each professional body has its own intensive formal process, however there are no written rules about the way cases should be prepared for and/or presented. It is therefore important that you appoint experienced lawyers in this field.
Taking legal advice as soon as possible can help minimise not only the potential damage to your professional career but also minimise the toll it can take on you personally.
As a professional it is important that you seek specialist advice from those who are experienced in representing professionals in these types of investigations or hearings, striving to maintain your reputation, professional status, and livelihood.
The amount of work involved in preparing for your case is not be underestimated. Our specialist defence lawyers in this field will consider each case individually and will formulate a plan to best meet your needs and your particular set of circumstances.
We can prepare written submissions, appeals, and applications. We also have a team of advocates who can attend police station interviews, work place meetings/hearings, and who can also carry out advocacy at tribunal hearings/inquests and in the criminal courts.
The most important step is to fully understand the issue and provide you with a ‘road map’ of options and next steps along with the potential outcomes and costs. We provide this via an initial consultation service for a fixed fee of £300 plus vat.
We will assess the amount of work involved in ensuring that your case is represented in the best way, with the best information, and where possible we will aim to provide you with fixed fees for certain stages of the case to enable you to make informed decisions.
Due to our experience we have a number of key industry contacts and depending on the nature of the case and your requirements we can work alongside other specialist experts, clinical practitioners, educational deans, inspectors etc. to achieve the best outcome for you.
