Defence Lawyers for Chiropractors

We understand the stress that you can face as a result of an investigation, particularly when a fitness to practise allegation is made. Our specialist defence lawyers are experienced in representing chiropractors across England and Wales when dealing with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) or associated investigations and disputes.

GCC investigations can be triggered by complaints made by the public, patients, other chiropractors or the Police, which suggest that a chiropractor’s fitness to practise is impaired. This may be due to unacceptable professional conduct, professional incompetence, adverse health issues, convictions or cautions, or by being included on the barred list by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

We can provide you with expert legal representation if you are not a member of a defence organisation, or have been refused representation by your defence organisation. Drawing from our experience we prepare robust defences to denied allegations, or where necessary present compelling mitigation; working closely with you to secure the best possible outcome.

Visit our Fitness to Practise page for more information on these types of investigations.
