REGULATORY PROSECUTIONS

Regulatory Prosecutions

The Police are not the only prosecutor, prosecutions can be brought against people or companies by government departments for:

Companies Act offences

Marine related offences

Civil aviation offences

Electricity offences

Health and safety, the list goes on.

We have expertise in defending people and companies charged with regulatory offences. Our advice is pragmatic and expert. Regulatory offences are often strict or absolutely liability (which means that unlike normal crimes such as assault) there are limited (if any) defences available.
