Professional Conduct

Specialist lawyers with unrivalled expertise in defending regulated professionals.

Talk to us

Our professional regulation team comprises specialist lawyers with unrivalled expertise in defending regulated professionals.

We fight hard for you, providing pragmatic, sensitive advice to guide you through each stage of the process. We work closely with colleagues in our criminal and employment teams to provide a holistic service and address each of the multiple jeopardies that a professional under investigation can face.

While we understand that every case is unique, it is unlikely that we will not have dealt with your type of professional regulation case before. We are highly experienced in this area and handle matters of every description, ranging from the straightforward to the incredibly complex.

Our expertise

We accept instructions from insurance companies, medical and dental defence organisations, professional bodies and private individuals. We help professionals from many different backgrounds, including doctors, dentists, pharmacists, social workers, opticians, chiropractors, paramedics, solicitors, barristers, chartered surveyors, veterinary surgeons, accountants, sports professionals, police officers and teachers.

We have specific expertise in the healthcare sector and regularly assist professionals in relation to NHS England and Maintaining High Professional Standard investigations and inquests.

We can help with fitness to practise investigations, registration and restoration applications and appeals. We also offer advice in relation to risk management, auditing, complaints handling and CQC investigations for professionals who operate their own business, with the aim of helping to avoid (or reduce the risk of) professional regulatory action.

One of our solicitors is also on the Safeguarding Case Management Programme (SCMP) Legal Advice Service (LAS) set up by Sports Resolution, which offers advice to various sporting bodies around safeguarding investigations and disciplinary hearings.

Our services

I contacted Deepika Raino after my professional indemnity organisation refused to support me and defend me. From the first contact I was fully reassured and convinced by Deepika that she would do everything possible to receive a positive outcome. I felt a big relief as I was very desperate and did not know what to do. I fully relied on her professionalism and expertise. Over three years I was fully supported and contacted when needed. As a result, after the MPT reviewed the restrictions on my practise, they were revoked completely and my fitness to practise is no longer impaired. Thank you very much.

Barrister, professional colleague

Deepika [Raino], you've been a fantastic help and support throughout the past year… thank you for all your guidance. I remember calling you feeling very helpless and lost but you quickly helped and reassured me, ensuring that the doctor and I had the support we needed in very testing circumstances, which ultimately led to the extremely positive decision. We honestly couldn't have gotten through it without you and your expertise. I will be forever grateful.
