Shepherd and Wedderburn has an unusually clear perspective on professional regulation. Not only do we work for the professional in their dealings with the regulators, we also work for the regulators themselves. This privileged standpoint gives us a genuine insight into the issues on both sides and ensures our advice is considered and comprehensive.
But we’re more than advisors, we’re advocates too. That gives us significant expertise in the courts and in tribunals and means we can call on the services of our in-house solicitor advocate team as required. Our experience covers highly sensitive matters involving, on occasion, allegations of criminality or inappropriate conduct.
We act for major professional institutions both in handling disciplinary cases and in advising on the complexities of internal governance. We are recognised as leading practitioners and run an annual Regulation Conference, bringing together key players from regulatory bodies across the UK.
