Crime & Regulatory

Crime & Regulatory

The Clarke Willmott regulatory team advises businesses and individuals that are subject to investigation or prosecution by a variety of bodies including the Environment Agency, Companies House, HM Revenue & Customs, Food Standards Agency and the Crown Prosecution Service. We can also provide advice and representation to appeal against enforcement and prohibition notices imposed under statutory nuisance regulations.

Our experience within the agricultural, construction and road haulage sectors make us ideally positioned to provide advice to operators facing intervention from the regulatory organisations that police those industries. We have unrivalled experience dealing with cases brought before the Office of Traffic Commissioner for public enquiries and Inquests heard by the Coroner’s Court.

Because of our close connection to the agricultural and food production sectors we can advise and assist clients facing interventions concerning allegations of food safety or product liability. We have assisted a number of food business operators dealing with complex investigations concerning HACCP procedures and labelling regulations.
