PROFESSIONAL DISCIPLINE

Professional Discipline

In New Zealand there is a growing number of regulated professions, whether that be health and medical practitioners, teachers, accountants, tradespeople, financial advisors, real estate agents and the list goes on.  The problem, however, is that adverse outcomes in regulated professions can severely impact your career, that’s why is it important to get advice – and good advice – sooner rather than later.

We have experience in advising and representing professionals when facing prosecution for disciplinary offences by their professional bodies, or as a result of being charged and tried in the courts.

Professionals facing criminal charges, being accused of misconduct or at risk of being prosecuted for misconduct should get in contact with us and obtain legal advice as soon as possible, because getting the right lawyer in early could mean the difference between resolving an issue before being prosecuted and having to defend the allegations.
