Police Law

Since 2003 Paul has developed significant experience of regulatory and disciplinary proceedings alongside his local government and social housing practice and his extensive knowledge of policy and governance issues. His experience in his principle areas of practice and outside the Bar have been of immense practical value when advising in, conducting and chairing regulatory and disciplinary cases over the years.

From 2010 Paul acted as independent Counsel to Police Misconduct Hearings. He was instructed in a number of complex and highly sensitive cases for police forces in England. In January 2016 Paul was appointed to the role of Legally Qualified Chair of Police Misconduct Hearings.
