Professional Conduct, Regulatory and Disciplinary Proceedings

Proudly serving Melbourne, Geelong and regional Victoria

Professional conduct, regulatory and disciplinary proceedings are not criminal proceedings, however, they are still governed by confusing rules, regulations, and codes of conduct. Decisions made can have an enduring and significant impact on a person’s career. Often evidence produced during a disciplinary hearing can be used in other matters ultimately brought before a criminal or civil court. As such it is crucial that you engage legal representation before participating in a disciplinary matter.

Gallant Law has extensive experience representing countless clients before various tribunals, departments, and agencies; therefore, our clients can be confident they will receive comprehensive service and representation when they work with one of our lawyers. 

With any offence, whether it be minor or severe, legal representation is essential. If you are facing a disciplinary matter the team at Gallant Law can help you understand your legal rights and represent you throughout the proceedings.

Our trusted firm represents professionals facing professional conduct, regulatory and disciplinary proceedings such as those initiated by:

checkmark Department of Education and the Institute of Teaching (teachers and childcare educators)
