Professional regulators

Bevan Brittan has one of the leading practices in professional regulation.

Acting for the regulators of lawyers, accountants, surveyors, architects, nurses and other medical professionals, our team provides a wide range of legal support that comes from many years of experience. We advise on issues around statutory frameworks through to rule drafting, policy and training. And we represent clients in disciplinary prosecutions, judicial review proceedings, and appeals.

As a firm that has a significant presence in the healthcare sector, Bevan Brittan is instructed by many of the industry regulators in the UK.

On the one hand, we are instructed by the large healthcare regulators including NICE, Monitor, and the Care Quality Commission. On the other, we advise organisations that regulate professionals. These include the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the General Optical Council, and the General Chiropractic Council.

Our work involves rule drafting, auditing files, policy advice, training, and disciplinary prosecutions. It draws on expertise from across our teams, from regulatory lawyers to specialists in contracts, outsourcing, and data protection. And our lawyers are highly rated for helping clients manage the day-to-day and longer-term strategic challenges that they face.
