  • Local Authority
  • Fire Service Authority
  • Environment Agency
  • Police

Business crime advice

We can advise you as any investigation unfolds, including attending formal interviews conducted by the Police and regulators (under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act) and provide you with strategic advice as the investigation progresses. Early input from our team is crucial to improving the chances of a positive outcome however, if formal enforcement action is taken, including criminal prosecution, we can advise and support you throughout the process.

As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is now carrying out spot checks to ensure that businesses have policies and procedures in place to make them COVID secure. We can help if you receive an enforcement notice, or if the HSE takes some other form of enforcement action following the visit. Visit our Health and Safety page to find out more on our work with the HSE.
