Position

In recent years, the principal focus of Greg Treverton-Jones QC’s practice has been regulatory and disciplinary issues concerning solicitors and other professionals. He is co-author (with Andrew Hopper QC) of The Solicitors’ Handbook, the 6th edition, of which will be published during 2014. He has been in many of the leading cases involving solicitors, e.g. Sritharan v The Law Society [2005] 1 WLR 2708 and Sheikh v The Law Society [2006] EWCA 1577 (interventions); Bultitude v The Law Society [2004] EWCA Civ 1853 (dishonesty); and numerous statutory appeals, e.g. Tinkler [2012] EWHC 3645 (Admin), Andersons and others [2013] EWHC 4021 (Admin). He advises and represents solicitors in respect of all of the most pressing issues of the day. He also represents other legal professionals (barristers and legal executives) and non-legal professionals (surveyors; teachers; architects) and some sports tribunal work. He also has extensive experience of Public Inquiries (North Wales Child Abuse: Southall rail crash and Paddington rail crash); corruption; and costs (particularly wasted costs applications).

Within: Professional discipline and regulatory law – Leading silks

Gregory Treverton-Jones QC - 39 Essex ChambersHe has been involved in so many of the leading cases, his insights are a distinct advantage.

Within: Professional discipline and regulatory law

39 Essex Chambers is ‘a go-to set for complex regulatory issues, for both advisory work and litigation’, with members covering both professional services and medical regulation. In the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, Andrew Tabachnik QC prosecuted and Gregory Treverton-Jones QC defended in a case brought against two solicitors from the now-closed firm Tandem Law; the pair borrowed money from the now collapsed Axiom Legal Financing Fund, with the funds spent by the solicitors on, among other things, a Porsche Cayenne. David Bradly successfully defended a mental health nurse, who ordered the strip searches of two patients he believed to be in possession of cannabis.
