Architects are often placed in a position of great responsibility, so allegations of unacceptable professional conduct or serious professional incompetence are unsurprisingly treated seriously. If you are facing an investigation by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), it’s important you seek the right advice to minimise the damage to your career and reputation.
Our specialist professional discipline lawyers can provide you with advice, and assist you at all stages of proceedings, from the initial referral to the ARB to a full Professional Conduct Committee hearing or court case. Speak to our experts today by calling 0161 827 9500, or by filling in our contact form.
