I have significant experience in regulatory/disciplinary matters, which complements my practice in professional liability.
Regulatory and disciplinary matters can be very challenging for professionals to deal with, particularly if the investigation or disciplinary proceeding is not covered by insurance.
Direct access can be a very cost effective way for the professional to obtain help in dealing with the matter. I deal with a number of matters on behalf of lawyers and accountants/auditors.
I also assist clients making complaints to the Legal Ombudsman.
For professionals anxious about their obligations as a result of GDPR, I have co-written a series of articles which appear on chambers’ website.
Here is an article for the Wellbeing at the Bar website in which I consider the impact of a High Court decision concerning lawyers’ mental health in regulatory/disciplinary proceedings.
I am a member of the Association of Regulatory and Disciplinary Lawyers.
