Our Regulatory and Professional Discipline barristers have the expertise and experience to provide specialist advice and representation in all areas of regulatory and disciplinary law.
Members of Chambers regularly appear for regulators and defendants or registrants in a wide spectrum of tribunals, inquiries, and other professional bodies. Many also sit as tribunal members. Our Regulatory and Professional Discipline team has experience advising or appearing in tribunals for financial services, public safety, environmental, tax, licensing, the medical profession, the legal profession, accountants, architects, police, clergy, and sports.
Our barristers are regularly seconded to regulators and in-house teams and benefit from a real-world understanding of how different regulators and sectors approach compliance and enforcement issues.
Members of the Business Crime team specialise in dealing with matters such as fraud, money laundering, bribery, market abuse, tax evasion, deferred prosecution agreements, corporate plea discussions, proceeds of crime, Unexplained Wealth Orders, and internal and external investigations. They have extensive experience acting both for and against the Serious Fraud Office, the Financial Conduct Authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, and the Financial Reporting Council. Our members are regularly instructed on complex advisory business crime and financial regulation matters arising from regulatory change, remediation and redress schemes, restructuring and insolvency scenarios and commercial transactions.
In the sports arena, members of the team have particular expertise in disciplinary proceedings brought by various governing bodies, including doping and misconduct cases, regulatory matters involving selection, funding, governance, safeguarding, licensing, sponsorship, and FA Rule K arbitrations.
