Our team has substantial expertise in dealing with work related criminal investigations by the police, HSE, ORR, local authorities and other regulatory bodies.
We know that such investigations, often in the wake of serious injuries or fatalities, represent highly charged situations for our clients, with ramifications for personal freedom, business viability and reputation. We aim to be there on day one to advise clients on managing the immediate accident aftermath and initial contact with the police/regulatory body. We will thereafter advise and guide clients throughout the various stages of each investigation and any subsequent prosecution.
Our team regularly acts for clients across numerous sectors including construction, manufacturing, engineering, the leisure industry, agriculture and transport. We are regularly instructed on manslaughter investigations involving both companies and individuals, including multiple fatality cases.
Providing additional support and expertise in the field of health and safety, we regularly deliver bespoke training sessions to our clients, covering the ever changing landscape and how it impacts upon our clients.
Our team regularly presents at industry forums, events and seminars and write for health and safety focused industry publications, discussing changes to legislation and the implications for insurers in this sector.
