Who are we?

You care about your organisation, your team. You care about those who may be affected by your organisation and its impact on the environment. You care about your organisation’s reputation, sustainability and managing risk proactively.

Working with us reinforces your team. We’re with you every step of the way, supporting you with the specialist advice, knowledge and representation you need to protect and develop your organisation within a regulatory framework.

We specialise in advising and supporting our clients during regulatory investigations, corporate manslaughter and health and safety investigations, transport and road traffic compliance, food and product safety breaches and compliance with environmental law. We work across both the private and public sector, including independent and public sector health clients.

It’s up to you to focus on your business; it’s our job to focus on you.

We are one of the largest regulatory teams in the UK enabling us to provide extensive national coverage, supported by our international Legalign offering where required. Our offices, and specialist lawyers are based across the country from Glasgow to Newport. We’re confident that our local knowledge engaged through our 7 locations combined with the strength and depth of knowledge within our specialist service teams mean that we’re uniquely placed to provide the best advice to your business, when and where you need it.

How can we help you?

What if the worst should happen?

A Crisis Response Plan, or a Business Continuity Plan? What about an Incident Response team? Who leads that team? Who is the single point of contact? Legal Professional Privilege?

Have you reported the incident to the relevant Regulator? Which Regulator is leading the investigation? What communications/visits etc. have taken place with Regulator? Have you been served with Enforcement Notices?

What arrangements are in place for communications with employees, customers and suppliers? Impact on contracts? Do you have a press and social media policy? Who leads on Crisis PR?

How will you manage HR issues arising out of an incident? What insurances do you have? EL? PL? D&O? Legal Expenses?

Questions like these can be daunting at the best of times, and during a crisis may be more than you can handle.

Since February 2016 more than 20 entities have been fined over £1 million for regulatory breaches and many more individuals have received custodial sentences for driving and regulatory offences.

Our approach is to know your needs before you need them. We anticipate what questions you’ll need to know the answers to, and prepare you for if and when they’re asked. We work with your other stakeholders, including your insurers and brokers, to ensure the very best outcome for your organisation.
