Professional Discipline & Regulation

Robert Seabrook QC has extensive experience in Professional Discipline. Chambers & Partners have recognised him as a leading practitioner since 2008.

“[He] is a silk with an impressive level of experience in professional discipline work.” He has an assured style of advocacy, and the “ability to handle the most difficult cross-examinations in a very smooth way.” One impressed instructing solicitor recommended that he be employed “when you need the big guns.” (Chambers & Partners 2013)

“Few, if any, can rightly claim to have the advocacy experience of Seabrook, who is widely applauded for his “excellent work” in GMC hearings and criminal medical malpractice cases.” (Chambers & Partners 2012)

“[He is]really good at tough cross examinations”, a legacy of his background in criminal law. “If you want someone with natural authority who the tribunal will listen to, he’s your man.” (Chambers & Partners 2011)

Robert Seabrook QC comes highly recommended for his excellent forensic skills.  Police and medical crime and disciplinary work are his forte and he fits neatly into the high-profile case arena, having such cases as the prosecution of Professor Sir Roy Meadows under his belt.” (Chambers & Partners 2008)
