For many years a feature of the Disciplinary Conference has been Tony Child's update of the year's legal events in the disciplinary world. We would like to take this opportunity to thank him for the wise words and advice he has imparted to us all.
All things must eventually change and next year Tony will be passing the baton on to his colleague Ros Foster - also of Browne Jacobson.
Ros is an experienced public and regulatory law practitioner who trained in local government, working in house dealing with a wide range of contentious and non-contentious public law matters. She has substantial experience in the regulatory/disciplinary sphere as well as being involved in a number of judicial review challenges, on behalf of both claimant and defendant. She has a good track record of resisting challenges at the pre-action protocol and permission stages.
We look forward to welcoming Ros next February and hopefully for many years to come!
