If you are facing investigation by your industry regulator or have been called to a hearing by a governing body, our professional disciplinary lawyers will defend your best interests and help safeguard your reputation, your career and your business.
Regulated professionals have certain responsibilities and need to ensure they are legally compliant to their regulated body and uphold the highest professional standards. An investigation by a regulator or disciplinary body can, in some instances, trigger an investigation by enforcement agencies, and swift and robust response is needed at the outcome to mitigate the effects of such investigation and bring the matter to a positive conclusion.
We appreciate that an investigation by a regulatory or professional body can be a distressing and anxious time for any professional. Allegations of professional misconduct may lead to disciplinary proceedings and, with penalties ranging from substantial fines, suspension or even a lifetime ban on practicing, there is risk of irreparable damage to your reputation and even loss of livelihood.
