Alexandra FelixQEB Hollis WhitemanShe mastered the considerable detail underpinning the allegations of misconduct and provided sound and practical advice.

QEB Hollis Whiteman ‘has a long tradition of presenting cases for healthcare regulators and its members demonstrate the concomitant strength in depth and experience‘, although, like the set’s criminal presence (which positions it well for parallel criminal and regulatory investigations), its members do not exclusively prosecute. Selva Ramasamy QC represents the General Dental Council (GDC) in a case against a self-representing dentist, who facing a lengthy charge sheet, is alleged to have attempted to burgle files from the GDC’s solicitors, Blake Morgan LLP. Before the same regulator, Alexandra Felix successfully defended the founder of sports mouthguard manufacturer Opro; the regulator alleged that the fitting of the guards amounted to practising dentistry.
