Health and Safety
This is a complex and specialist area of law covering almost every aspects of business, including accidents at work, the safety of products and services sold, and fire safety in the factory and office. The offences are often technical in nature, combining English and European law, and leave little room for a defence. Fines for such offences, depending on the turnover of the company, can be in the hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The assistance of a lawyer with expertise in health and safety and regulatory law, at an early stage, can help to reduce the risk of offending, mitigate the effects of an incident, and can maximise the prospects of success at Court.
