Professional Discipline and Regulatory Law
Barrister Jamie Johnston represents local councillors in disciplinary procedures concerning serious allegations such as malfeasance, financial mismanagement or discrimination. He is familiar with the interplay and interpretation of the Localism Act 2011, Nolan Principles and principles of natural justice in investigations and hearings.
Jamie provides pragmatic guidance with robust representation at all stages of disciplinary proceedings. He is adept at identifying failings in the investigative process and advises clients how to challenge them. He is a forceful advocate throughout any disciplinary procedure, most notably in any final hearings.
"Jamie and I worked together negotiating a national sport contract. He had great attention to detail; displayed speed with which he picked up the issues; had a very effective and measured negotiating style; and was a pleasure to work with."
Rod Findlay, Sports lawyer
“Very impressed with Jamie – clear logical advice but most importantly his approachability. I will be using him again and will recommend him to my Real Estate dispute colleagues.”
