Business crime and regulatory offences – understanding your organisation and market sector

The biggest mistake organisations facing a regulatory investigation make is not seeking legal advice as soon as it becomes apparent that an enforcement body is asking questions about your business.  Seemingly innocent regulatory requests for information can result in a full-blown investigation and prosecution.  Our job is to provide you and your Board with the advice you need to prevent or end an investigation as swiftly as possible.  We do this by talking to key stakeholders in your business to understand the culture and practices of not only your organisation but the market sector you operate in.  This means we can build a defence that takes into consideration the normalities and commercial realities of your sector.  We can also provide water-tight advice if you are asked to attend an interview under caution and make sure legal professional privilege and litigation privilege is protected throughout the entire investigation.

Our team of solicitors has advised organisations ranging from SMEs to large organisations with cross-border issues.  You can be confident in our process, knowledge, and commercial shrewdness.  Whatever you call us for, be it a health and safety fatality, an alleged trading standards breach, or a dawn raid, we will be at your side as soon as possible, checking the lawfulness of the investigators’ actions, advising staff, keeping notes on who the investigators speak to, the questions they ask and the documents they seize and conducting our own investigation into the incident with an aim shutting down the investigation fast or building a vigorous defence should prosecution occur.
