3PB’s David Richards, Head of the national chambers’ Public & Regulatory Law team, and pupil barrister Dr Tagbo Ilozue have reviewed three new regulatory key cases, covering environment regulation, food safety and housing regulations, all handed down since the UK went into lockdown.
Public and Regulatory
Tagbo Ilozue has a keen interest in public and regulatory law. He is a member of the Attorney General’s Junior Junior scheme and welcomes instructions on that basis.
He is a co-author of the LexisNexis PSL practice note on the Fisheries Act 2020 and he has been instructed on multiple occasions to advise the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, both independently and as a led junior, in matters including:
- Implementation of the Polar Code within domestic legislation.
- Jurisdictional issues and potential offences arising from a collision at sea involving citizens of a British Overseas Territory who were operating a vessel in foreign waters.
- The Victims’ Right to Review scheme for MCA prosecutions.
Tagbo’s interests extend to the field of professional discipline, including regulation of the legal profession. He has been trained to present cases on the behalf of the NMC and will act for both regulators and registrants at fitness-to-practice hearings for any healthcare regulator. He has also advised in relation to a solicitors’ negligence claim, and he is keen to develop his practice to include disciplinary and negligence proceedings against solicitors and barristers.
His medical background makes him particularly well suited to act in inquests. His work to date includes:
Re: BW (2021)
