Professional discipline and regulatory law

Within: Professional discipline and regulatory law – Leading juniors

David Morris - Serjeants' Inn ChambersAlways well prepared, but nimble on his feet when the unexpected occurs.

Within: Professional discipline and regulatory law

Serjeants' Inn Chambers is ‘a strong team with an excellent reputation’. The set, which is notable for including several members with medical expertise prior to joining the Bar, has a strong offering across all the medical disciplines. Angus Moon QC successfully defended a doctor against the GMC’s appeal of his suspension for an affair with a patient. In the High Court, David Morris represented a doctor cleared by the MPT with regards to the relevant test for dishonesty in fitness to practice proceedings following the Supreme Court’s decision in Ivey v Genting Casinos, which replaced the previous Ghosh test with a simple objective one; the matter was remitted to tribunal. Also among the junior ranks, Ranald Davidson is instructed to represent a male paramedic accused of sexual misbehaviour when carrying out pre-fight checks on women in a ‘white-collar boxing’ competition.
