Legal team appoints new expert


Banner Jones Solicitors of Chesterfield and Sheffield are delighted to announce the arrival of Professional Disciplinary expert to the firm.

Rachel Buckley joined Banner Jones in December from Richard Nelson Solicitors in Nottingham.

She has several years of experience within the Professional Disciplinary and Regulatory field which adds a new dimension to the services Banner Jones can provide.

Rachel said: “Professional Disciplinary is a niche area of law and essentially it involves helping those professionals who are in trouble with their regulatory body.

“I work with professionals across all sectors including doctors, pharmacists, dentists, teachers, nurses, accountants and even solicitors.

“The regulatory regimes across the spectrum of healthcare and other professional fields have never been tougher.

“Protecting a practitioner’s registration, reputation and livelihood is central to my work and I am excited at the opportunity to expand the services offered by the firm.”

Rachel qualified in 1997 and is a member of the Association of Regulatory and Disciplinary Lawyers.

She became a specialist in fraud and regulatory work and has been involved in successfully defending a wide range of clients often in high profile and complex criminal prosecutions.

Rachel can assist a client from the initial stages of their investigation, right through to formal proceedings.

Chris Sellars, director of Banner Jones, said: “Rachel is a valuable addition to our team and we anticipate that her experience will further add to the quality representation we can offer and ensure that we remain at the forefront in the provision of legal services.”
