What is Regulatory Law?

Many professions are regulated by professional standards boards and codes of conduct. Failure to comply with such regulations may lead to an investigation or prosecution. We have an expert team who are experienced in advising on a range of regulatory matters. Our team are able to offer friendly and professional advice and can answer any queries that you may have.

What sectors do we have experience in?

Our dedicated team have experience in advising on a range of regulatory matters in various sectors, such as:

  • Health & Safety Investigations
  • Trading Standards investigations
  • Fire Safety investigations
  • Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulation and compliance
  • Environmental Law
  • Food Industry Regulation
  • Firearms Licensing
  • Professional Discipline & Regulation

We are able to attend at very short notice with any clients required to attend PACE interviews to ensure that pro-active advice is available as soon as regulators commence their investigation.

Where it is clear there has been a breach, our early intervention can give us the opportunity to discuss resolution of any breach without the need for a Court prosecution. If there is a prosecution, we can construct a thorough defence where appropriate, or advise on a timely guilty plea to minimise any penalties which may be imposed.
