We have dealt with Health & Safety prosecutions for small family companies and for employees of those companies who are accused of some of the most serious offences. These are offences which individuals never believe that they would face, such as manslaughter. The investigations of these offences take a very long time and require robust and intelligent advice right from the beginning. This will include the inquest, interviews under caution and involvement in the investigation stage. The wrong advice given at the early stage can have a dramatic effect on both the outcome and indeed whether or not a person is prosecuted.
You as a business owner have done your level best to run your business in accordance with the law, it is simply a fact of life that sometimes things go wrong and you need us involved in order to achieve the positive outcomes that you deserve for the hard work that you have put in to your business. We will advise you in particular at the investigation stage but also if you are prosecuted we can help you with the compliance issues surrounding the allegations.
Our aim is to give you clear and sensible advice that helps you understand the legal issues that have to be considered. This work inevitably involves us working with you as a team, we need to understand the relevant technical issues to help us understand your business in order to achieve the most successful outcome that we can for you and your company.
The advantage that we have in respect of this work is that we have access to some of the best experts and barristers in the country. We are able to manage your case should you be prosecuted right through to its conclusion, However in order to maximise your success we need to be involved at the earliest stage. So if the Environment Agency, Health & Safety Executive, local authority of any other agency wishes to ask you questions about breaches of regulations please get in touch with us. The sooner we are involved the greater the chances of a successful outcome.
