Professional Discipline

Home Legal Practice Areas Professional Discipline


Those working in professions that are governed by an official or regulatory body, such as solicitors, doctors and teachers, are subject to various standards or codes of conduct both within and beyond the workplace.

A suspected breach of these standards can result in professional disciplinary proceedings, which in turn can lead to an individual having their license to practice suspended, or even to them being struck off their professional register altogether.

At Regan Peggs Solicitors, we offer reliable, intelligent advice to professionals who find themselves involved in disciplinary proceedings. We can represent you at any tribunals or hearings, and can appeal for a judicial review on your behalf where appropriate.

With intricate knowledge of a wide range of professional areas, we can help you to prepare a robust defence to keep you working in the job you love.
