Regulatory compliance is essential, yet complex. We will help make sure you meet  your legal requirements and, if something does go wrong, give you dependable, expert support.

We offer specialist advice in areas such as health and safety, fire safety, data protection, environmental, bribery, food safety, animal welfare and Trading Standards. With in-depth knowledge, we are perfectly placed to take proactive action, safeguarding your business, enhancing its value and protecting your reputation. Where needed, we can draw on other Trethowans’ teams to offer a complete commercial service.

Should ‘the worst happen’ – and occasionally it does – the consequences can be severe: criminal convictions, hefty fines, imprisonment and adverse publicity. We can support you throughout any criminal investigation, media coverage and court proceedings. Whatever happens, we will always give you clear, robust advice you can trust.

We can help by:

  • Advising on regulatory compliance issues
  • Undertaking legal ‘health checks’ to identify areas of concern and prioritise risk
  • Reviewing and drafting policies and procedures
  • Providing strategic advice during a criminal investigation
  • Attending interviews under caution (PACE interviews) with you
  • Defending prosecutions brought by regulators such as the Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency, Fire & Rescue Services or local authorities
  • Representing you at the Magistrates’ or Crown court
  • Delivering bespoke training
