Chambers & Partners

 experience & expertise

Alan Jenkins has appeared to defend practitioners in professional disciplinary tribunals for more than 20 years.  He has acted for and advised people across a wide range of professional fields.  He has acted in cases concerning doctors, dentists, solicitors, police officers and many other professionals: pharmacists, optical council registrants, accountants, actuaries, psychologists, social workers, hearing aid practitioners and others.

Given Alan’s background in criminal work, he is often instructed in cases where there are stark differences between the accounts given by the complainant and the defendant professional.  This type of case may well require a thorough and effective cross examination of the complainant.

Standout cases in recent years include defending Dr Barton, the prescribing doctor in the Gosport War Memorial Hospital investigation (see Inquests).
