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 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.

His medical background makes him particularly well suited to inquest and professional discipline work. 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.

His interests extend to regulation of the legal profession. He has advised in relation to a potential solicitors’ negligence claim, and he is keen to develop his practice to include disciplinary and negligence proceedings involving solicitors and barristers.
