Overview

Regulatory

Expert advice and guidance on criminal and regulatory issues including matters concerning health and safety, the environment, transport and trading standards.

Regulation has placed increasing responsibilities on all organisations in recent years, whether they operate in the private, public or third sector, and this is likely to continue. In the critical areas of health and safety, transport, the environment and trading standards, a high level of awareness and preparation is needed to avoid potentially heavy penalties.

Weightmans' Regulatory team was established to provide a single-source, value-for-money advisory service for all these regulatory issues. Whatever your business, we'll help you to prevent problems wherever possible, and to manage them effectively when they do occur.

Dealing with health and safety, we have a team of experienced advocates, including one who is dual-qualified as an EHP, supported by a former HSE Principal Inspector. We provide a seamless service, from consultancy, advice and training solutions through to post-incident investigation, representation at PACE interviews and support throughout court proceedings, including inquests. For critical situations where you may need immediate support and advice, we provide a 24-hour emergency response service.

In terms of prevention, we offer a full range of advisory services, including on-site risk survey and risk assessment work, advice about documentary procedures and safety management systems, plus full site audit services. Our health and safety training solutions include bespoke packages tailored to your needs. Our transport specialists offer  insightful advice about operator's licence issues and other regulatory requirements. In addition, we provide expert support based on many years' experience in criminal proceedings and representation at traffic commissioner public inquiries.

The increasing media spotlight on all things green means that organisations in all sectors are increasingly affected by environmental issues, from contaminated land and waste disposal through to pollution of water courses and noise abatement. Our friendly, accessible team will guide you through the web of legislation and help you protect you and your business.
