Defence lawyers for Pharmacists
Richard Nelson LLP’s Pharmacist Lawyers have significant experience in providing advice and legal representation to pharmaceutical professionals, on all regulatory, disciplinary and professional misconduct matters.
We are experienced in defending;
- Pharmaceutical investigations by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC);
- The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA);
- Employers in internal investigations;
- or by the Police/NHS Protect in criminal pharmaceutical investigations.
We can provide you with robust legal representation and support from the outset of an investigation, including representation at any interview, through to hearings and any appeals.
How our Pharmacist Lawyers can help
If you have received a criminal conviction or caution from any of the pharmaceutical bodies listed above, or have any other fitness to practise issue to declare, our Pharmacy Solicitors can assist you with the ‘something to declare form.’ This will ensure that you provide the GPhC with appropriate information to declare your circumstances fully, but in the best possible light.
We understand that the pharmacy sector is different to other sectors. Likewise, we also understand how a pharmacy business is different to other businesses. Our specific experience and knowledge of the pharmaceutical sector ensures that we provide specialist advice for pharmacists. Our Pharmacy Solicitors have experience in representing both hospital and a community pharmacy and technicians.
As a result of not being a member of a defence organisation, a growing number of pharmaceutical professionals find themselves without advice or representation during an investigation. Other pharmacists instruct us because they simply require a more bespoke level of service or more specialist legal advice and representation than they are receiving from their defence organisation.
We receive instructions from either individuals who are funding their defence privately or via an insurance policy. We can provide a flexible service to suit the needs of your specific circumstances.
Our Pharmacist Lawyers have a proven track record of obtaining excellent results for pharmacists who are facing a pharmaceutical investigation. We will listen to you and will work with you to devise the most appropriate strategy for your case, to get you the best outcome possible. At every step we will provide you with clear and practical advice, to enable you to make fully informed decisions regarding your pharmaceutical investigation case.
