Why Taylor Law?
Facing an allegation of professional misconduct is stressful. As well as the threat of an investigation, you could be facing damage to your career, your reputation and your business. If your fitness to practice is called into question, your ability to earn a living could be in jeopardy.

Professional misconduct defence
Professional bodies can be heavy-handed in investigating allegations and commencing investigations against their members. They have substantial power over your business and career and it is not always exercised in a balanced way.
At Taylor Law we have decades of experience in defending professionals during investigations and at professional misconduct hearings. Every professional body or regulator has its own procedure. We will work within this to ensure that you are properly represented and that you have the best defence possible.
We have experience across a wide range of issues, including professional competency, criminal allegations, defamation, dishonesty, fraud, whistleblowing, breach of fiduciary trust and misconduct in public office.
We have represented clients in front of many regulatory and professional bodies and work within their regulatory requirements to deal effectively with allegations in an efficient and timely manner.
We have particular expertise in the area of police misconduct. We are instructed by the Police Federation of England and Wales to represent police officers in respect of a wide range of allegations.
Our team is led by one of the North’s leading specialists in Police Law and regularly takes on both high-profile and legally significant cases.
Issues we have successfully defended include allegations of racism within the police force, claims under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, death in custody, assault, malicious prosecution, misfeasance in public office, allegations of breaches of the Human Rights Act 1998 and gross misconduct.
At Taylor Law we offer in-depth expertise and pragmatic advice. If you are involved in a professional misconduct case or a preliminary investigation we will provide strong guidance and representation and work with you to resolve the issue without delay.
Taking legal advice early on as soon as the situation arises can mitigate problems and offers the best chance of quick resolution. If you would like to discuss allegations against you, we would be happy to hear from you.
