The hallmark of a profession is its ability to self-regulate. Most professions now have formal disciplinary bodies and tribunals supported in their roles by statute. For the New Zealand legal profession, this includes the Standards Committee, the Disciplinary Tribunal and the Legal Complaints Review Officer.
Our members are experienced in disciplinary proceedings, whether in defending or prosecuting a wide range of professionals. Some have also acted as tribunal members. Our members are also experienced in disciplinary-related court applications, such as the judicial review of LCRO decisions before the High Court.
