Find out how we can help

We have a longstanding reputation for excellence in advising regulated professionals in all aspects of their business affairs, meaning you can be assured of a comprehensive, considered and compassionate service.

Professional regulation confers many benefits; it also confers many responsibilities. For those professionals who are personally regulated or whose businesses are regulated, client satisfaction, reputation and regulatory compliance go hand in hand.

We advise professionals in both the ordinary and extraordinary events that arise in the course of setting up and running a regulated business or a business employing regulated professionals. Clients seek advice from us when challenging licensing decisions, in complying with the law on Data Protection and confidentiality or, more seriously, when a complaint has been made or regulatory investigation launched.

The increasingly pervasive and encompassing nature of professional regulation and the continually extending reach of regulators with enforcement powers, means that professionals have an increasing need to turn to lawyers to ensure that that are legally compliant with the prevailing rules and regulations and in order to protect their business interests and reputations.

We appreciate that, as a busy professional, you may need to contact us outside of normal business hours. We are on hand outside of your work hours to address any worries that need to be dealt with urgently.

Whether you are already under investigation or believe that an investigation against you may be launched, we can assist you.  If you would like further information, or to speak to one of our specialist lawyers, please contact a member of our team.
