MPR successfully make representations to Disclosure & Barring Service DBS

  • Posted

At MPR Solicitors we have the expertise to be able to make representations on your behalf to the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS). This will normally be the case if you have been sent a Minded To Bar letter for referral to be included in a barred list.  Inclusion on a list can have a significant impact on your career and family life. At MPR we will bbe able to advise you initially on your prospects of making successful representations  and then drafting these with you and putting a response pack together in order to maximise your chances of success.

This is possible in all but what are called "autobar offences'. In other instances if the test for regulated activity is met then you are entitled to make representations which is your opportunity to explain why it would be inappropriate or disproportionate to include you on a barred list. You will be able to gather evidence in support such as witness statements, testimonials and expert reports to support your representations. 

At MPR our expert solicitors will be able to guide you each step of the way in what will inevitably be a difficult time for you and your family. For more information please contact us in the strictest of confidence for an initial consultation or a second opinion on or call us on 020 3 824 8080
