Martin Hadley was admitted as a solicitor in 1988, specialising in criminal defence work shortly thereafter. He has nearly 30 years’ experience representing individuals at police stations or before criminal courts.
This knowledge and experience gained over many years has equipped him well, enabling him to review cases from a balanced and independent view point. His clients receive the benefit of this unbiased advice, always given in their best interests.
Since 1999, Martin has used these abilities to specialise in representing healthcare professionals, including staff of a major pharmaceutical company as well as those self-employed. He provides advice on investigations by the police, statutory and regulatory bodies. He has advised many professionals at the police station, court, Coroner’s Inquests and disciplinary proceedings. He has undertaken the advocacy and presentation of cases before the General Pharmaceutical Counsel.
Martin has dealt with the full range of issues that will arise when representing professionals, including corporate manslaughter, fraud and regulatory breaches. As Martin is able to undertake his own advocacy he brings continuity that cannot be achieved by the use of external counsel.
His abilities were recognised in 1997 by the Legal Services Commission (now the Legal Aid Agency) when he was appointed to the Funding Review Committee where he sat as both Chair and member.
He is a Duty Solicitor and currently serves as a member of the Criminal Sub-Committee of the Nottingham Law Society.
