Rules and regulations…there seem to be more of them every day. And it can be frighteningly easy for businesses and individuals to fall foul of them.
It’s frustrating and time-consuming to find yourself caught up in a potentially costly dispute with a regulatory body.
Our highly experienced team will give you clear and honest advice about the best way forward. When we take up a fight we give it 100% but we never lose sight of the goal; that is, to achieve the best possible outcome for you. So we always value the role of negotiation in fighting your corner with the authorities.
Members of our civil and criminal departments will work together to provide a seamless service and an experienced solicitor, backed up by a team of support staff, will be dedicated to your case throughout.
We will advise you on the representation that’s best for you, whether that be from our in-house team of advocates, some of whom have higher court rights, or from specialist counsel.
The firm acts in a wide range of matters, including:
- Defending local authority prosecutions
- Licensing applications and disputes
- SIA (Security Industry Authority) appeals
- Public Carriage Office matters
We also provide specialist advice to teachers accused of criminal offences.
Another specialism is in issues concerning theDisclosure and Barring Service and the Information Commissioner, including appeals and judicial review. It’s essential that clients fully understand the implications of an investigation for DBS disclosure, whether or not the investigation leads to a conviction.
As far as costs are concerned, we will advise you clearly and carefully about the economics of your case and the costs involved in representing you.
