If you or your business faces a regulatory enforcement investigation or prosecution by the Environmental Protection Department of your Local Authority then contact us. We can advise on what constitutes a statutory nuisance, the relevant statutory defences, abatement notices, notice breaches and appeals. We can also assist with negotiations with the local authority concerning the wording of an abatement notice.
You will benefit from the expert advice of a criminal law solicitor and our experience has shown that the sooner we are involved the better the outcome. We have an outstanding reputation built on skill, determination and success and our Business Crime and Regulatory Enforcement Team has experience across the whole range of advice and representation services. We act for individuals and businesses who are under investigation or who already face prosecution. Our aim is to minimise the impact on you commercially and personally.
We have vast experience in dealing with regulatory prosecutions and investigations and we can advise on dealing with the interview process and, if necessary, representation at court.
We can advise on individual and corporate liability before and after the service of an abatement notice and where breach proceedings may follow.
Where required, we can involve other Gotelee specialists to offer expert advice on related employment, property or business law issues arising from the investigation.
You will find that we are approachable, understanding, sympathetic and practical in the advice that we give. Please telephone or complete the enquiry form.
Please note that we are unable to offer representation for criminal cases under legal aid and that legal aid is not available for companies and for individuals is subject to a strict means test in the Magistrates Court.
