Professional Discipline Solicitors

Few professionals will need to be made aware of the potential wide-reaching consequences an allegation of professional misconduct or wrongdoing can have.

When under the scrutiny of a regulator, their careers, reputations and livelihoods could be on the line. We recognise how sensitive these issues tend to be and understand what’s involved in protecting professional status and reputation. Strategically, we strive to engage with a professional’s regulator at an early stage, but if all else fails, we have powerful advocacy skills ready to be deployed on our clients’ behalf.

Our Approach to Professional Regulatory & Disciplinary Matters

In recognition of the demands and sensitivity of this work, all professional discipline cases are dealt with at partner level. Our advice always takes reputational issues into consideration and is aimed at limiting the impact professional regulatory and disciplinary proceedings may have.

Our team of professional discipline lawyers, based in London, represent clients in many professional and sporting sectors. We regularly deal with many different professional regulators, including the following bodies:

  • The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal
  • Department for Business Innovation and Skills
  • Financial Conduct Authority
  • General Medical Council
  • Security Industry Authority
  • The British Horseracing Authority (formerly the Jockey Club)
  • General Osteopathic Council

We are particularly well-known and respected for our work helping solicitors defend against allegations before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.

Partner James Saunders (a member of the Solicitors Assistance Scheme) and Matthew Purcell are regarded as an experts in this field. For instance, they secured the exoneration of the former Director of Legal Affairs at News International before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal in respect of alleged wrongdoing in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal.
