Professional Misconduct and Disciplinary Tribunals
We have a long established reputation as a centre of excellence for advocacy in the criminal courts. Over the past few years, our members have increasingly been instructed to apply those advocacy skills in the setting of professional, disciplinary and regulatory hearings involving the Fire Service, Police, Sport organisations, and the legal and medical professions, to name but a few.
We have a dedicated Police Disciplinary Team. We represent Officers facing gross misconduct hearings. The team is recognised as being at the quality end of barristers’ Chambers practising in this field. Rebecca Herbert is the national legally qualified Chair of the Police Appeals Tribunal, and Steven Evans is a legally qualified Chair of the Police Disciplinary Tribunals.
Several Members of Chambers are on the Nursing and Midwifery Councils approved list and appear in cases involving fitness to practice including health, conduct and competence.
