Regulatory Law

Our Regulatory Team has extensive expertise in advising and representing parties in all manner of Regulatory Law matters.

Our expertise

Our team of specialist regulatory Barristers regularly act for Teachers, Nurses, Solicitors, Barristers, Doctors, Accountants and other professionals before their various regulatory bodies. They also have wide-ranging expertise in Sports Law and are able to provide representation across the full range of sports’ governing bodies. We are able to work directly with professionals in need of help as well as accepting instructions from Solicitors in the more traditional manner.

Our barristers have been involved in a number of high-profile regulatory cases including cases arising out of the recent “Trojan Horse” affair in Birmingham. Other significant examples of our work include success at the High Court on behalf of a “superhead”, and securing a mental health nurse’s authorisation to practice despite several serious allegations relating to the religious grooming and emotional abuse.

As well as representing professionals, our specialist team also regularly present and prosecute disciplinary cases and offer advice and representation in cases relating to local authority and statutory regulation and compliance (including health and safety, environmental protection, transport, trading standards, planning law and permissions, food hygiene, and licensing, including of firearms, liquor and private hire). Members of our Team also act in coronial matters, inquests and inquiries; in the Court Martial; in prison law matters; and in ecclesiastical matters.

Cornwall Street Barristers has a strategic alliance with niche regulatory law firm The Reflective Practice where former member Andrew Faux is a co-director.
