The institute regulates the activities of its members by a code of practice, a discipline committee and a continuing professional development education scheme

Peter is a consultant and highly regarded lawyer specialising in advising clients on matters relating to professional and financial regulation and discipline, as well as regulatory and disciplinary law in sports related matters. He regularly acts as an advocate in disciplinary and regulatory proceedings before Disciplinary Tribunals, Appeal Tribunals and in the High Court. Peter’s expertise is reflected by his appointment as a decision maker for many regulatory bodies. He is currently Chair of the Law Society Professional Standards and Ethics Committee, a position he will hold until August 2024.

Peter also retains his membership as the Law Society representative on the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal Users Group.

Matt Bosworth, Head of Regulation at Russell-Cooke says: “This appointment demonstrates once again that members of Russell-Cooke’s regulatory team are held in high esteem by key regulatory bodies. Peter’s years of experience and record speak for themselves; he continues to plough a deep furrow through areas as diverse as professional services and sports regulation.”

Peter Cadman says: “I am pleased to be appointed to this significant position at CIMA. Accountants often take on a very close advisory role with businesses and in the current climate they have a key part to play in the regrowth of the economy. It is crucial that the profession is beyond reproach in all respects and the Review Panel is one of the bodies tasked with keeping it that way. I am very much looking forward to stepping up to the plate.”
