Our dedicated team of Health & Safety experts operates across all three UK legal jurisdictions and has deep insight into developing proactive compliance strategies, in addition to responding to reactive incident response.
Our leading Health and Safety & Risk Advisory team (top ranked by the UK legal directories) operates across all UK jurisdictions (England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland), with clients drawn from all sectors.
Utilising unrivalled experience advising clients in high hazard industries we have created and refined tried and trusted measures to give clients from all sectors the best chance of ensuring that adverse incidents are avoided. Should the worst happen, however, our team of specialists will ensure that the best possible outcome is secured, from providing support and advice in the immediate aftermath of an incident, the investigation and any enforcement action, inquest, fatal accident inquiry or prosecution. We are lawyers and business advisors who give strategic, commercial and pragmatic advice.
We have developed a valuable insight into the HSE's enforcement priorities, their sector strategies and the importance of a positive health and safety culture within an organisation. This understanding feeds into the range of advisory services that we offer to clients to upskill their internal teams, enhance their standards of compliance, and explore the regulatory strengths and weaknesses of the business.
