"Exchange Chambers “remains a go-to set for professional discipline matters."
Our barristers are instructed by private individuals, regulatory bodies and defence organisations and have experience appearing before the following regulatory bodies:
Our barristers are particularly adept for their work in the healthcare regulation field, acting on behalf of both individual professionals, such as medical and dental practitioners facing complex disciplinary proceedings, and on behalf of the various regulatory bodies, particularly the GMC and GDC.
We also act for a range of other professionals including accountants, architects, engineers, insurance brokers, solicitors, surveyors and vets before their respective regulatory bodies.
A number of barristers are appointed to the disciplinary panel for England Boxing, and one member is Chair of the Competition Disciplinary Committee of England Handball.
We offer advice and representation during all stages of the disciplinary process. We are well equipped to handle cases of the utmost severity and complexity. Utilising our vast strength in the criminal and civil field, we particularly excel in cases with potential or concurrent criminal and civil proceedings.
What the Directories Say
“The set exhibits strength in defending healthcare practitioners in fitness-to-practise hearings and other matters, including appeals.
