Our experience

    We have extensive experience of advising clients facing enforcement action by regulators, defending clients facing disciplinary hearings and advising clients facing criminal investigations. We understand that the prospect of regulatory action can have serious implications for the survival of a business or for a professional’s practice and we recognise the need for urgent, specialist advice from expert lawyers.

    Many cases call for cooperation and engagement and we will work collaboratively with regulators to help our clients achieve the best results. Other cases call for a more robust approach and we will vigorously defend our clients at each stage of their case. We will draw upon our experience in this area to guide our clients through investigations and enforcement proceedings and advise them on the best approach to protect their interests.

    To speak to a member of our team, in confidence, please call 01616 966 229. Alternatively please submit our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you urgently.

    What is regulatory law?

    Regulatory law is essentially any legislation that affects any aspect of a business. There could be industry-specific laws, such as product safety standards, or more general legislation that applies to every business or organisation e.g. health and safety guidelines.

    As experienced regulatory law solicitors, we can help businesses wanting to ensure they are fully compliant, along with businesses dealing with potential breaches and possible enforcement action by the authorities responsible for overseeing that specific area of regulation.
