Professional Discipline and Regulation

Our team of Barristers offer expertise as advisers and advocates in all areas of Professional Regulation and Healthcare law.

R 1

Deans Court Chambers is the only regional barristers chambers in the UK which is Band 1 ranked by Chambers and Partners for Professional Discipline.

These independent rankings are a reflection of the exceptionally high level of expertise and experience to be found within the Deans Court Professional Disciplinary Law team. The success of the team lies in the excellence of individual practitioners which combines to produce a true strength in depth in both defence and prosecution work.

“An exceptional bunch of barristers who have renowned practices both prosecuting and defending individuals facing allegations of misconduct relating to clinical failings, sexual misconduct and other serious matters. Many of the barristers draw on their supplementary skills in inquests and criminal cases to inform their practice in this area." - Chambers and Partners

The team’s breadth of knowledge extends across the full scope of Professional Discipline encompassing all of the main professional regulators (please see Professional Healthcare and Regulation for further details).

Although the team has extensive experience across the range of Professional Discipline its reputation for excellence has undoubtedly been built on the bedrock of Healthcare Discipline in which Deans Court has been a leading presence for twenty years. We have appeared both for defence and prosecution in some of the most complex and high profile cases to have been heard by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in recent years.
