Regulatory and Disciplinary Proceedings

Mark has developed an increasingly busy practice in regulatory work. He initially appeared on a number of occasions on behalf of the General Dental Council in fitness to practise hearings against dental practitioners before the PCC.

These days, he represents private individual members of a number of professions facing disciplinary proceedings brought by their professional bodies, including solicitors, chartered accountants, pharmacists and teachers.

Most recently, he represented a housemaster from a well known public school cleared of a variety of acts of misconduct with teenage boys and a paramedic accused of failing to recognise a patient was having a heart attack from her ECG results, an allegation dismissed at half time following concessions made by the HCPC’s expert on the interpretation of the ECG in cross-examination.

He has appeared for serving police officers in disciplinary proceedings before the Police Complaints Commission and on behalf of Lincoln’s Inn in disciplinary actions brought against students.

Mark has also acted for prisoners before discretionary lifer panels with a view to securing their re-categorisation and eventual release and in the judicial review of decisions of the Parole Board.
