With extensive experience of representing police officers in Misconduct Hearings, Police Appeals Tribunal hearings, criminal proceedings, inquests and public inquiries, and judicial review, our specialists in police law offer an invaluable service.

At Exchange Chambers we have a dedicated team of barristers who specialise in police law and disciplinary work. We represent police officers of all rank facing misconduct proceedings in complex and often high profile cases.

We have extensive experience of representing police officers in Misconduct Hearings, Police Appeals Tribunal hearings, criminal proceedings, inquests and public inquiries, and judicial review. We also act in the full range of civil litigation concerning police, such as false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, assault, and misfeasance in public office.

We provide expert advice and representation to officers facing a range of disciplinary allegations such as corruption, dishonesty, harassment, improper use of force, misuse of confidential information, neglect of duty (particularly in the context of related deaths in custody), sexual assault, and theft.

Our barristers are routinely instructed in sensitive, complex and high profile cases all over the country. Owing to the breadth and experience of our criminal department, we excel in defending disciplinary proceedings with potential or concurrent criminal proceedings.
