Professions such as doctors, nursers, pharmacists, teachers, social workers, architects and social workers are now subject to the provisions of statutory regulation.
Disciplinary proceedings brought by professional bodies against members of their professions have serious implications for the reputations, careers and livelihoods of such professionals. Given the potential repercussions, such proceedings require full representation and a vigourous and robust defence.
We have appeared for persons before the Solicitor's Disciplinary Tribunal, the Irish Medical Council, the Dental Council, the Irish Nursing Board/ An Bord Altranais, University Disciplinary Hearings and various Accountancy and other regulatory bodies.
The firm has experience in dealing with all stages of the disciplinary process including the grounds for making a complaint, interim suspension orders, oral hearings, the imposition of sanctions and the publication of the outcome of disciplinary hearings.
Professionals who have become the subject of an investigation by their professional organisation are in urgent need of competent, specialised and experienced legal assistance and should contact us without delay.
