Regulatory Investigations

We act for solicitors, doctors, dentists, opticians, accountants, financial advisers and traders.  We cover all stages of the regulatory process offering detailed and strategic advice.  In many cases identifying and addressing problems early on can reduce or eliminate the need for regulatory action at all.  Additionally for law firms we provide relevant training and advice on money laundering systems and procedures.

Our areas of expertise include internal investigations, frequently undertaken to anticipate and often to prevent the need for the regulator to investigate.  We offer a highly responsive service, dealing promptly and decisively with allegations of misconduct and lack of competence.

We represent clients where necessary at Coroners’ inquests into deaths involving care homes, hospitals or medical practices.  We have extensive experience in dealing with complex issues of causation. 

Our aim is always to bring the matter to an end before it reaches a disciplinary hearing, and we have considerable success in keeping our professional clients outside the tribunal system.  If necessary however, we will fight hard for our clients in disciplinary proceedings.
