Stephensons has a team of specialist DBS lawyers who advise and defend a wide range of professionals facing barring by the Disclosure and Barring Service. Our DBS lawyers have extensive experience of acting for individuals at risk of being included in the Children’s and/or Adult’s Barred List.

Therefore any decision to bar will have serious implications professionally and it is vital that you seek advice from specialist DBS lawyers as soon as possible.
If you have received a letter from the DBS stating they are minded to bar you from working with children or vulnerable adults, our specialist DBS lawyers can assist. Our DBS solicitors have helped a number of clients avoid barring decisions. We have secured successful outcomes for clients working in the healthcare, education, sports and ecclesiastical sectors. Our solicitors can assist with preparing written representations to the DBS and, where necessary, appeals against barring decisions.
