Health & Safety Prosecutions
Are you being investigated by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) or the Local Authority? The HSE exercises its right to act as private prosecutor and prosecute people for criminal offences and works in many instances in conjunction with Local Authorities.
As the HSE does not have legal enforcement powers or authority in its own right to prosecute defendants or companies, all prosecutions are brought via independent solicitors acting for the HSE or the Local Authority legal department. If you are being investigated by the HSE for a offence or being prosecuted at court by the Local Authority, then we are at hand to advise and represent you or your company in any proceedings at court. We have a wealth of experience in representing people for contested and uncontested cases at court. If you have been asked to attend an interview under caution by the HSE or Local Authority, you are entitled to the same rights as in a police interview to be represented by an independent solicitor. Alternatively if you have received summons or requisitioned to attend court for a HSE/Local Authority prosecution, contact us today for expert advice and specialist representation at court
What are costs?
We represent clients privately and would be happy to discuss the costs of advice and representation. Most firms charge legal fees according to the time they spend on your case. We believe fixed fees provide greater certainty in terms of cost, so you can make informed decisions and provide complete transparency.
It is very important that you get the best advice available to you. We offer expertise and experience iand will ensure you receive well rounded and tailored representation. Contact us today for all your legal enquiries.
