Abdul Iqbal QC

Abdul Iqbal QC has been appointed by the Football Association to sit as a Chairperson on its National Serious Case Panel.

The FA National Serious Case Panel deals with disciplinary issues arising from improper conduct and discrimination issues nationally.


The appointment means that Abdul Iqbal QC now sits as Chairperson with other Panel members as a Disciplinary Commission to hear and rule upon allegations brought by County Football Associations nationally in relation to alleged breaches of FA Disciplinary Regulations.


The Disciplinary Commissions hear and determine allegations against players, officials, and affiliated football clubs relating to alleged discrimination based on individual characteristics and a wide range of improper conduct.


The appointment adds yet further experience and depth to our regulatory and disciplinary team. We understand the position of professionals whose conduct is being scrutinised by their disciplinary tribunals, and we have experience representing healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists and pharmacists), accountants and police officers before their professional bodies.
