Capsticks is the leading provider of legal services to the health and social care sectors.
Due to large growth plans in the North of England, our highly rated Professional Regulatory team is looking to recruit barristers in both our Leeds and London office. Individuals will be required to prepare and present professional disciplinary cases before panels of our regulatory clients both in the healthcare field and other sectors outside of health.
The work largely involves presenting cases but also requires managing an investigatory caseload where it is alleged that the registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired through misconduct, competence or health issues and preparing those cases for hearings before panels and committees of the relevant regulators.
It is likely that there will also be opportunities to appear in the High Court and the First Tier Tribunal on appeals from decisions of the regulators. Depending on experience, there are likely to be other advocacy opportunities arising from other aspects of the department’s work.
