You, Regulatory and enforcement
& Ince, in any case
Directors and officers – investigations and regulatory enforcement
Company directors have to comply with a number of statutory duties and legal obligations. If you find yourself at risk of disqualification, our regulatory solicitors will represent you at proceedings and help you avoid or reduce the length of disqualification.
We can also provide your directors with cost-effective training and advice on the scope of their duties on particular transactions or in general.
We also advise and represent clients on the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) and Money Laundering Reporting Officers (MLROs) in investigations and enforcement action.
Our solicitors have extensive experience representing those under investigation and being prosecuted by Trading Standards Authorities (TSA). We will provide you practical advice at an early stage.
If your business is being investigated, we will advise you on compliance and will work to resolve matters with the TSA through remedial rather than enforcement action.
The consequences of trading standards convictions are far reaching. As well as a fine and/or imprisonment, the Court has the power to make an order forfeiting the illegal or infringing goods, a confiscation order and a director disqualification order.
Planning Enforcement Notice (PEN) breaches
If your local council issues you or your business with a PEN it is vital you try and remedy the breach. Proceedings for a breach will start at the Magistrates’ Court, but cases will go to the Crown Court for sentence as the power to make a Confiscation Order lies with them.
Our regulatory solicitors have extensive experience helping those who have received a PEN or who have failed to comply. We will represent you at any interview under caution and in proceedings before the Courts. The sooner you engage our services the better, so we can work to achieve the best outcome for you and your business.
Please get in touch and find out how we can help or call 07515196609 if you find yourself in an emergency situation.
