Simon Walsh

Call 1987

Police Law

After many years working for police forces across the country, giving advice and appearing as advocate in inquests and in cases before the High Court, the Employment Appeals Tribunal and the County Courts in civil jury trials, Simon began to specialise in police discipline cases (both as legal advisor and presenting counsel) following the Taylor review and the introduction of the Police (Conduct) Regulations in 2008 and 2012.  He has led teams from Chambers lecturing across the country to all types of stakeholders in the new Regulations, ranging from ACPO officers to panels of independent members, where his two decades of Police Authority membership has proved unique and invaluable.
