Regulatory Compliance & Consumer Protection
The Regulatory compliance & consumer protection unit is part of our Public and regulatory law group. The unit is able to draw upon a breadth and depth of call, experience and skill within Regulatory Compliance. We offer advice, often at short notice, and advocacy in a variety of Regulatory Compliance areas for example:
- Prosecutions on behalf of the General Medical Council at its Fitness to Practice Panels
- Food safety
- Liquor licensing
- Police civil actions
- Consumer protection
- Trading Standards
- Marine and Fisheries related regulations
- Animal Health & Welfare
- Health & Safety
This Unit also has an array of experience of prosecuting (both for the Health & Safety Executive and for numerous Local Authorities) and defending in all manner of cases ranging from the more minor regulatory breaches typically dealt with by magistrates to the largest, most serious and complex matters in the Crown Court, often concerning fatal accidents. Unit members are also experienced in representing parties in coroners' inquests into fatal accidents.
These examples represent but a fraction of the areas covered by the members of the unit, click on the unit members' individual links for greater details of CVs and areas covered.
The unit members also give presentations or instructional guides to solicitors and other professionals involved in Regulatory Compliance and often write articles on their own areas of expertise. If you would like to have a unit member give a presentation or guidance on a particular area please contact the clerks.
