Professional Discipline

Our firm specialises in representing all professionals who may face the unfortunate experience of being subject to a complaint that leads to their professional disciplinary body becoming involved. We represent individuals in both the public and private sector in respect of disciplinary proceedings before a number of tribunals.  Our clients include solicitors, barristers, public service employees, teachers, child care workers, accountants, tax practitioners and doctors.  

As part of your employment or profession, you may face disciplinary proceedings for the breach of a guideline or directive.  For example, we represent health professionals who face a notification process with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. We have also represented people in Legal Services Commission proceedings, Blue Card applications, Public Service Commission proceedings and Tax Practitioners Board proceedings.   

We assist our clients to respond to complaints, participate in the investigatory process, in the making of oral and written submissions and if necessary, appeal a decision to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal or other appellate Commission or Court. 

We pride ourselves on a thorough analysis of complex factual issues and a timely resolution of matters. 

If you have a professional discipline issue you would like to discuss, please contact one of our solicitors.
