Our members include Specialist Regulatory Advocates in Health & Safety and Environmental Law at each level of seniority.

Health & Safety

Our work in this area includes enforcement proceedings and inquests relating to major disasters and serious workplace injuries and fatalities resulting from safety failings. We represent regulators and regulated corporate defendants and individuals. In particular, we have extensive experience of the construction, transport, retail, care, waste management, and leisure and entertainment industries.

Fire Safety

We advise and represent defendants and fire authorities, including the London Fire Commissioner (LFC) in enforcement proceedings and inquests all over the country. We advise at every stage, from the critical period prior to the issuance of proceedings, throughout the magistrates court hearings and all the way to the higher courts of appeal.
