Professional Discipline and Reputation Management

Professional conduct allegations can be profoundly damaging and distressing to those concerned.

Our team has extensive experience in defending individuals in this area. and by providing strategic and decisive advice we successfully protect our clients’ professional reputation and fitness to practice.

We  assist in matters concerning the General Medical Council, the General Dental Council, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal and the Bar Standards Board.

Our advice and assistance covers the full range of stages that formal regulatory action can take, from investigations to tribunals. The focus is primarily on preventing any disciplinary action resulting from unfair or unwarranted accusations of misconduct or malpractice and we work closely with the Civil Litigation and Employment departments to achieve this outcome.

Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP has acted for senior healthcare professionals, serving police officers and leading accountants as well as students and trainees for whom an adverse disciplinary finding would effectively bar them from entering the profession of their choice.

Additionally, our service provides for clients who wish to expunge details on formal records, whether on the Police National Computer or Fingerprint and DNA database, or those who receive minded-to-bar letters from regulators and authorities. Together with our wider litigation team we provide advice on any data-related reputational issue so that our clients are assured they will receive the best service.
