Risk & Regulation

We advise on health and safety, environment, fire, food, trading standards and security law. Our approach is proactive, preventing enforcement action or prosecution wherever possible by management and/or engagement with the regulators, but where necessary defending. We bring a wide range of experience and skills to the process of organisational risk management.

Our practice includes advice in the following areas:

  • Interpretation of regulatory legislation (including environment, health & safety, food, fire, security, planning, trading standards and bribery)
  • Defending criminal cases brought by regulatory bodies such as HSE, EA and EHOs
  • Risk management for directors, senior officers and owners in regulated areas and corporate manslaughter
  • Inquest representation
  • Contractor control and risk management
  • Environment and health & safety accident/incident investigation
  • Regulatory risk and liability management systems such as ISO 14001 and 18001
  • Mediation of disputes
  • Legal aspects of security liability
  • Training/seminars for organisations of all sizes

Our specialist in these areas is Richard Voke.
