Here's how we can help
Experienced Legal Team
Our Solicitors and Solicitor Advocates are best placed to advise you of the risks of facing prosecution and the possible impact it may have on your livelihood and your reputation.
Safeguarding Your Interests
We aim to safeguard your interests and protect your reputation in cases where the legislation results in individual officers of the company/organisation and/or the company/organisation being prosecuted for compliance and regulatory breaches.
We can assist you in a variety of situations and will always look to problem-solve and negotiate a resolution that best suits your needs.
The right expert legal defence advice from the start.
Our team of experts advise companies, shareholders, directors, charities and other institutions about the implications of criminal, compliance and regulatory matters and understand the crossover between conflicting priorities between shareholders, investor agreements, the framing of articles of association, restrictive covenants, employee contracts, director’s contracts, allegations of gross misconduct and the views of any relevant regulatory bodies. We regularly instruct expert witnesses to support your case and construct a reliable defence to certain allegations.
Here to help when you need it most.
Each regulatory body has a different set of powers, and we can guide you through the difficult procedures of an interview under caution, the exercise of search warrants and the seizure of evidence to ameliorate your position. Businesses, charities, and other institutions are facing an increasingly complex set of compliance rules that can adversely affect their prospects. Steps must be taken early and in advance to protect the health and reputation of the institution or company, and any affected shareholders, directors, certain key employees and stakeholders.Get support and advice now
