Defence Lawyers for Vets

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) are obliged to investigate complaints about vets and veterinary nurses that relate to allegations of very poor professional performance, fraud and dishonesty, criminal convictions or cautions, and adverse health. The most common allegations relate to inadequate animal care and poor communication.

Our defence lawyers provide specialist representation against such allegations, particularly in cases where you may not have representation provided by a union or defence organisation. We understand the impact that such investigations can have on your life and career, so we work closely with you to reach the best possible outcome. Drawing on our experience our lawyers prepare robust defences in support of denied allegations and, where necessary, present persuasive mitigation.
