Professional Bodies

For many years 39 Essex Chambers has been in the first rank of Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 for Professional Discipline.

Chambers & Partners 2012 stated: “This set has built a formidable professional discipline offering. Its elite phalanx of silks and seasoned juniors enjoy a rich and varied diet of instructions. Healthcare and police matters are to the fore, but the barristers here also undertake matters relating to sport, financial services and the legal profession.”

Recent decades have seen a remorseless increase in the regulation of professions and businesses. With regulation comes discipline, and the need to uphold high professional standards and hence public confidence in the regulated organisation. The traditional deference to the trusted professional who knows best has disappeared. The patient, the client and the customer have become empowered. Lay involvement has become an important part of the disciplinary process across the regulated sector, and this is set to increase.

Old systems of self-regulation have disappeared as a result of well-publicised scandals, and increased public awareness. In this changed environment, both regulators and the regulated require sound and user-friendly legal advice and advocacy. 39 Essex Chambers can offer this across the entire spectrum: indeed, it is now probably the most broadly-based major set of chambers in London, with Members providing specialist advice in every principal area of regulatory law.
