Professional Discipline Lawyers Manchester & Stockport

Regulatory and Professional Discipline matters are more complex than ever. Our regulatory law and professional discipline solicitors work to provide a clear path through the most complex issues.

What are regulatory proceedings?

Many professions, such as solicitors, doctors, dentists, nurses, midwives and teachers are regulated by an official regulatory body. Those bodies can investigate individuals for breaches of regulations, legislation and professional discipline. Such proceedings may have very significant consequences including preventing individuals from continuing to work in their chosen profession.

It is vital that you receive advice as soon as you are notified that an issue or complaint has arisen. The complaint may relate to fitness to practise, professional misconduct or a criminal conviction. We are able to advise you throughout the process. Often, receiving advice at an early stage can mean that matters are resolved more quickly and with a better outcome.

How we can help

Our Professional discipline solicitors and fitness to practise solicitors approach every case with the same high standards. We can submit representations on your behalf, prepare robust defences, liaise with third parties, instruct experts and provide expert advocacy where that is needed.

We understand that proceedings of this nature, with your professional registration, reputation and personal life in jeopardy, are extremely distressing.  We will work tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome.

We have experience of dealing with clients from a wide variety of professions and have advised solicitors, teachers, social workers and medical professionals in relation to matters that may affect their professional status.

We also understand the significance of a criminal caution or conviction for professionals and our extensive knowledge of both criminal law and regulatory procedure enables us to provide expertly tailored advice.

In serious cases a regulatory investigation may be linked to proceedings before the Coroner’s Court and, with our wide experience of inquests, we are uniquely positioned to offer you advice that will anticipate all the issues that may arise .
