Business Crime and Regulation

Support and representation for businesses when dealing with regulators and enforcement authorities.

Our specialist solicitors can support you across a wide variety of legal issues with comprehensive proactive advice from an early stage to help you minimise the risk of falling foul of the law as well as strategically advising you through regulatory and criminal investigations, providing complete support from beginning to end.

There are numerous occasions when company directors as well as organisations are brought before the criminal courts for their actions or failings. Sharing our extensive experience, we can provide advice and offer training sessions on the wrongdoings that can cause serious damage to a business.


It is vital that the processes are handled correctly, and you and your team are kept up to date on the various legal requirements relating to the prevention of bribery and corruption, money laundering, health and safety compliance and tax evasion to name but a few.

Our Proactive Services

  • Providing practical guidance and support on your legal responsibilities and regulatory requirements.

  • Drafting bespoke policies and procedures to ensure your business, its stakeholders and shareholders act in compliance with legal obligations.

  • Creation of - and training on - crisis management and incident response plans such as dawn raids.

  • Bespoke training sessions to up-skill your leadership teams and employees, delivered face to face or online, designed to address the issues and risks applicable to your business or the industry sector you operate in.
