What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Regulatory Crime FAQs

How can you define a regulatory offence?


It is a legal offence when your company fails to meet government regulations. Regulatory violations are often the result of professional negligence as they typically feature a party that fails to comply with the legal standards in a certain industry. In most situations, no real harm is done to another person, however, regulation to safeguard the public has been breached.

Why are there regulations in every business?


Regulations provide an ethical framework for companies with the purpose of maintaining reasonable requirements across all sectors; such as commerce, health and safety, and education. The introduction of a range of regulatory bodies aims to promote good practise throughout a specific company to impose regulations. An example of this would be, The Food Standards Agency and the Government Agency are in charge of defending public health in regards to food products. Managing government bureaucracy can be considerably time-consuming for some businesses, however, those who fail to comply can face serious sanctions: from heavy fines to jail terms.

Do I need to hire a solicitor if I am being investigated or prosecuted?


It is important to hire a defence solicitor to protect your rights, whether you are guilty or not. Representing yourself on your own in a court is not advised, as prosecutors are always seeking to bring forward the harshest penalties as possible. Our solicitors can help prevent this from happening and will do everything to mitigate your charges.

What is the penalty for failing to comply with the regulations?


For a regulatory conviction, the consequences will depend on the severity of the crime. Each case is individually assessed before reaching a decision. For example, an unlimited fine can be imposed on your company. It is also possible to enforce a jail sentence of up to six months for a severe Trading Standards breach. Additionally, it is also possible for an individual within the business to be held personally responsible for offences committed by the firm, whilst the company faces another charge as a separate legal entity.
