In recent times Tates has developed specialist expertise in representing professionals who face investigation or disciplinary action by their regulators.
We have experienced solicitors who act for clients at all stages of proceedings, from initial referral and investigation through to full fitness to practise hearings. We deal with a wide variety of cases, ranging from registration issues to allegations of serious misconduct.
These proceedings often run alongside criminal investigations and we have unrivalled experience in representing professionals in some of the most high profile cases.
We understand fully the needs and anxieties of professional clients facing the potential loss of livelihood and defend clients before a number of regulatory bodies. These include the:
- General Medical Council
- Nursing & Midwifery Council
- Health & Care Professions Council
- General Dental Council
- The General Pharmaceutical Council
- The General Optical Council
- Royal College of Vetinary Surgeons
