Architects / ARB lawyers

The Best Outcome Starts Here

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.

How we can help

At Burton Copeland, we can assist and our solicitors have helped many architects, including those accused of breaching the ARB code of conduct and those facing criminal allegations. We can assist you within the following areas:

  • Providing advice following the initial referral to the ARB and during the ARB investigation
  • Responding to ARB complaints on your behalf
  • Preparing and representing you at Professional Conduct Committee hearings and High Court appeals
  • Advising and representing you at the police station
