Professional Regulation

Many professions are regulated by professional standards boards and codes of conduct. These codes of conduct can be subject to frequent change and are becoming more demanding and sophisticated, and in some cases opaque. At the same time regulatory bodies are showing an increased willingness to bring actions against individual members of their professions in matters relating to professional conduct or fitness to practice.

At Duncan Lewis we can provide you with support in preparing for a hearing before a professional regulator. We can provide advocacy for that hearing and we can also assist with the preparation and presentation of any onward appeal from the decision of the regulatory body.

There are also certain sorts of decisions made by professional regulators that do not give a right of appeal. In these circumstances we can prepare and bring a claim for Judicial Review on your behalf.

This is an evolving area of the law and can be complex. At Duncan Lewis we understand the worry and stress that actions of this sort can engender and will be there to assist you throughout the process. Duncan Lewis is one of the largest firms in the Country working in many different areas, with access to considerable resources and extensive support of large multidisciplinary teams, to assist you through a stressful period.
