Professional Discipline

Scott advises and represents professionals throughout the entire professional discipline process. He regularly appears in fitness to practice cases where he defends Doctors and Nurses. He also acts for Regulators such as the General Osteopathic Council and The National College for Teaching and Leadership. As an extremely experienced leading junior, Scott is able to deploy the highest skills of advocacy – honed in the most serious cases in criminal practice – to optimum effect in mounting submissions and in the cross-examination of witnesses. His ability is such that he is regularly the subject of positive comment from instructing solicitors. His experience in this field, and inquests more generally, allows for continuity of representation in cases involving the potential culpability of healthcare professionals. Recent client feedback has included: “Thank you so much, you have saved my career” and “If there was a model of how to submit on the facts and UPC then you have just shown it.”
