ARDL Spring Bitesize Seminar: Abuse of Process in Regulatory & Disciplinary Proceedings: A Case Study

Time: 18:00 - 19:00
Venue: Webinar via Zoom

The seminar will consider abuse of process arguments before the regulators and will focus on one particular case in which our speaker was involved.

Speaker: Marios Lambis KC, 2 Hare Court

Marios Lambis began his career at the criminal bar in the Chambers of Sir Desmond de Silva QC where he undertook serious criminal defence work ranging from murders to terrorist offences such the funding of Al-Qaeda and the Iraqi Hijacking trial – then only the second hijacking trial in Britain.

However, for the last 20 years his practice has been almost exclusively in the area of regulatory and professional discipline. He has advised and appeared before most regulators on both sides. Historically, when he prosecuted for the GMC, he also assisted in training FTP Chairs on how to conduct hearings and what they should be attune to.

He has lectured or presented seminars before regulators, indemnifiers, solicitors and of course ARDL.

Since 2007 he has also been a Recorder of the Crown Court with a licence to try both Serious Sexual Offences and Appeals.
