Professional Discipline

Professional Conduct

Gavin has represented individuals in conduct proceedings brought by the General Medical, Dental, Optical and Pharmaceutical Councils, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the Council of the Inns of Court and the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.  He has particular experience where jurisdictions overlap and where the prospect of criminal proceedings is an important factor in tactical decision-making.

Recent cases include representing:

  • Numerous doctors and dentists in conduct proceedings relating to: dishonesty; serious sexual offences; and, personal issues (substance misuse and developing dementia without ‘insight’)
  • The National Health Service in the First-Tier and Upper Tribunals, in an appeal against a finding of ‘inefficiency’ and removal from the Performers List
  • Students brought before university conduct committees in relation to allegations of serious sexual misconduct

In 2012, Gavin spent two months working for the United Nations in Kenya and regularly appeared before the UN Dispute and Appeals Tribunals.
