Daniel Hobbs

Call 1998

Police Law

Dan has been involved in a number of lengthy employment tribunal cases in which he has defended the police against allegations of discrimination and whistleblowing detriment. Whether the problems have arisen within specialist operational departments (such as police dog training schools or Professional Standards Department), Dan has been able to navigate the issues and has helped the force concerned to resolve existing claims and avoid further claims. 

Dan’s police law practice also includes defending high value personal injury cases on behalf of police forces (particularly those involving stress at work and claims under the Harassment Act 1997).

Dan also conducts misconduct proceedings under the Police (Conduct Regulations) 2012 and stage 3 performance hearings under the Police (Performance) Regulations 2012.
