Experienced advisers across a range of industries and sectors.
Experts in responsibility and risk
You are responsible for safeguarding the health and safety of anyone affected by your business activities, including employees, customers and visitors to the premises. Our expert Health and Safety disputes team have extensive experience in advising a range of industries and sectors and understand that risk differs significantly between them, as well as between individual businesses.
Confident and clear approach
Whatever the nature of your business, putting procedures in place in order to avoid health and safety breaches is essential. We will work closely with you to establish a system that works for your business, and make sure you know and understand your liabilities and responsibilities as an individual and a business.
In the most serious cases, failures in health and safety can lead to serious injury or death, resulting in potential fines and imprisonment for you as the responsible business owner (including liability for corporate manslaughter in some instances).
We can support you throughout the process of an investigation by the HSE, from offering initial advice and information, through to defending against any prosecutions in court and assisting in mitigation.
