Regulatory Law


What is Regulatory Law?


The Regulatory Fitness to Practice Department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors can provide tailored regulatory law advice to support you through any regulatory process. 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. We can instruct, from our strong contact links, clinical professionals and leading barristers to provide helpful reports and support your case. Additionally, we can assist you by contacting, responding and attending meetings with other bodies involved to take the pressure and responsibility from your shoulders.


Duncan Lewis Solicitors is a safe and reliable guiding pair of hands. Why take the risk of going elsewhere.
