Overview

We deal with regulatory and disciplinary processes for professionals and regulators in various different forums and have extensive experience of representing medical, legal and financial services professionals before regulators including the GMC, GDC, NMC, CIPFA, ARB, ICAS and the FCA.

We bring together leading experts in administrative and public law and professional discipline to provide a one stop shop for regulatory clients – supporting them to investigate complaints and bring disciplinary proceedings while advising on governance and decision-making, drafting rules and regulations and defending legal challenges. 

We are the appointed panel solicitors for numerous insurer clients and professional organisations on risks under professional indemnity, directors & officers, errors & omissions, corporate & specialty and cyber risk policies. We have extensive expertise across the full range of negligence and other claims against professionals, from long-established professions in healthcare, financial lines, construction, insurance and law, to less traditional, developing professions. We use creative solutions and alternative dispute mechanisms to achieve the best results for clients.

We are regularly involved in ground-breaking litigation, including managing test case strategies, and offer the expertise of our in-house advocates to represent clients in all courts and tribunals including fatal accident inquiries and public inquiries.
