Members of Serle Court are regularly involved in professional disciplinary and regulatory matters and appear (for both regulators and defendants) before a wide range of tribunals and other professional disciplinary bodies.
In financial services, members of Serle Court have been involved in many of the most important cases since the coming into force of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, including the disciplinary cases brought by the FSA against CSFB International, Legal & General and Shell. Various members also acted in the long running FSA investigation into the split capital investment trust market. Members of chambers also sit (in some cases as chairman) on the disciplinary tribunals (and appeal tribunals) of institutions such as Lloyds and LIFFE.
Members of chambers also advise and are involved in disciplinary cases brought by the governing bodies of numerous other professions, in particular the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the Law Society.
Serle Court also has regular involvement in disciplinary proceedings brought by the governing bodies of various sports, including in particular the RFU, the FA, the ICC and British Swimming. Recent examples of cases in which members of Serle Court have been involved include charges brought by the FA against Wayne Rooney’s agent.
Individual members of chambers are also involved in disciplinary proceedings in other areas, including acting for the Church of England in various ecclesiastical and church matters.
