Why May You Need Our Regulatory Solicitors?

A regulatory investigation is when an investigation is launched against you or your business or organisation by a governmental, regulatory, professional or statutory body. Most individuals and businesses are subject to control and oversight by one or more regulators with enforcement and prosecution powers.

Our regulatory solicitors and lawyers are experienced in dealing with investigations, sanctions and prosecutions from all UK regulators, including

  • The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • The Environment Agency (EA)
  • Local Authorities
  • Care and Quality Commission (CQC)
  • And many more

Action by UK regulators against you or your business will have an adverse impact on your business operation and reputation; it might involve costly financial penalties and prosecutions.

Regulatory Defence To Place You In The Best Position

With over 300 regulatory bodies in the UK, with the power to pursue and impose criminal and civil proceedings and sanctions, it is important to have the right legal advice and representation from the outset.

Examples of the type of regulators include:

  • Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
  • The Health And Safety Executive (HSE)
  • The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • The Environment Agency (EA)
  • The Office Of Fair Trading (OFT)
  • The Care Quality Commission (CQC)
