When you’re facing a regulatory investigation or enforcement action, don’t underestimate the benefit of an experienced and knowledgeable guide to navigate you through the process. Specialising in corporate criminal defence work, my experience covers health and safety, environmental, food safety and hygiene, trading law and road transport matters. I regularly defend proceedings brought by the HSE, EA and local authorities.
I am a qualified solicitor advocate, with an excellent court success rate. I will help to explain the regulatory investigation process fully to you, discuss all the potential outcomes and help you define what success might mean, and work as hard as I can to achieve it for you.
If you’re facing a regulatory investigation, come and see us as soon as possible. Getting advice early can have a big impact on the outcome of your case.
Tell us everything – anything you say will be confidential, but we need to know the whole story so we can give you proper advice and get the best result.
If you’ve got any concerns, ask us – no question is a bad question, and it’s better for you to understand the full picture.
