Professional Conduct

Advisory Panel (PCAP)

Assistance for solicitors facing disciplinary issues.

The PCAP provides support to solicitors who are or may be subject to disciplinary proceedings including complaints, show cause events and trust accounting issues. The assistance is confidential and independent of the regulatory authorities.

Submit an EOI

NSW solicitors are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to join the Advisory Panel.

Role of the PCAP

The panel consists of experienced solicitors who have in-depth knowledge of the procedures relating to conduct and disciplinary matters.

The panellists are able to help you understand how the regulatory processes work. This is to assist you in interacting with the regulators, including any communications you have with them. The panellists can also direct you to other useful support services. The panel is a service which is there to support you at a difficult time.

The panel's assistance is free. It is not legal advice. However, some of the panellists (as noted beside their names) are available to provide legal services to you. Those services and associated fees are a separate arrangement which you would discuss with the panellist.

These procedures include:

  • complaints
  • show cause events
  • trust accounting issues
  • unqualified practice (by solicitors)
  • costs disputes involving the regulator
  • external interventions
  • compliance audits
