Our team has a physical presence in all three UK legal jurisdictions.

Our top-ranked Health and Safety team operates across all UK jurisdictions and is active across a wide range of sectors impacted by criminal regulation. We have built up considerable experience particularly high-hazard industries such as construction, manufacturing, waste and energy.  

Our deep immersion in case work gives us insight into The Health and Safety Executive’s enforcement priorities, their sector strategies and the importance of a positive health and safety culture within an organisation.

This deep understanding feeds into the range of advisory services that we develop and offer to clients to upskill their internal teams, enhance their standards of compliance, and explore the regulatory strengths and weaknesses of the business.

However incidents always happen, and when they do we are available to our clients on a 24/7 basis for those critical moments. We support our clients through the immediate crisis, any subsequent Police / HSE / EHO investigation, and through to any enforcement action, inquest or prosecution.  Our team gives strategic, commercial and robust advice.
