Professional discipline and regulatory law.
The Professional Discipline and Regulatory Law Team has a wide range of expertise and experience, which enables us to provide a comprehensive, high quality and client focused service.
Members of the team are highly regarded experts within their fields of practice, recommended in the Legal 500 rankings, and include Legal Assessors and Advisors to a number of Fitness to Practice panels.
From our silks to our seasoned juniors we act in all stages of proceedings across the healthcare, police, financial, legal, transport, sporting professional regulators and disciplinary tribunals. The team is also able to call upon chambers' substantial expertise in financial crime. All of Crucible's barristers have experience in serious criminal cases, which gives us a solid foundation in advocacy, forensic legal analysis and an ability to act in a wide range of associated proceedings.
Several of members of the team have been appointed to the Health and Safety Executive List of Specialist Regulatory Advocates and have experience of Criminal, First Tier Tribunal and High Court appearances on behalf of government regulators.
Crucible's barristers are frequently instructed to appear on behalf of bereaved families, interested persons and corporate entities at Coroners Inquests, including those engaging Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights, requiring juries.
We have experience advising and representing individuals on appeals against Disclosure and Barring Service barring decisions, including appearances in the Upper Tribunal.
A number of our barristers are qualified, where appropriate, to accept instructions directly through the Direct Access scheme.
To assist our professional clients and colleagues we provide regular training, updates and insights, relating to the Professional Disciplinary and Regulatory processes in the regulated sectors.
