If you or your business is facing an investigation, our expertise covers a wide range of regulatory areas from health and safety, to trading standards, to the Environment Agency, to professional regulation (such as accountancy, healthcare, and legal services).

Our firm is highly ranked in London and the UK for our skills and exceptional client care by Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.

We deeply understand the serious consequences being prosecuted as a result of a regulatory investigation can have for an individual or their business. Depending on the severity of the allegations, you could face the loss of your livelihood, your ability to work within certain professions, your financial freedom, even your personal liberty.

We will carefully consider the specific facts of your case, working closely with your compliance officer or team (if necessary) and providing tailored advice to suit your individual needs. Your best option will usually be to engage cooperatively with any investigation and our team has extensive experience liaising and negotiating with regulators on our clients’ behalves, with the aim of reaching amicable resolutions.

Our priority will always be to keep your personal and commercial needs central to our instruction, minimising reputational damage and securing the future of your business or livelihood.
