Legal Solutions

Health and Safety

Our national health and safety team provides 24/7 specialist advice and support to businesses and individuals who are being investigated or prosecuted for work-related incidents.  Led by experienced specialist partners who are recognised in the legal directories for dealing with work-related criminal investigations and described as “exceptional” and “hard working” with “superb” strength and depth of resources.  The team takes time to understand each client and is noted for its “excellent” client manner.

Each lawyer is aligned to sector teams including transport and logistics, leisure and hospitality, retail, food and drink, public sector, manufacturing, construction and care, which ensures that cases are handled by lawyers who understand the specific challenges that a particular business or individual faces.  The team has national reach and so can be on-site quickly to provide vital support and advice in the immediate aftermath of an incident and help prevent/mitigate enforcement action and contain the incident.

We have years of experience handling investigations and prosecutions for corporate manslaughter, gross negligence manslaughter, health and safety, food safety, environmental matters and Coroner’s inquests. Many of the cases have been high profile and we have been on hand to provide advice in relation to PR and communications. The team also provides non-contentious and risk management advice and regularly presents at health and safety events.
