Corporate & Regulatory Defence Carmarthen

Government regulations are constantly changing, affecting various industries and leaving them feeling restricted in the ways in which they can and cannot operate. As a result, many businesses and companies get entangled and are penalised by the new laws unknowingly. The resources and time spent trying to comply with the new laws and regulations are very costly, and once you have been accused of an infringement, it’s difficult to defend yourself. Therefore, having a local team of regulatory defence solicitors that can represent you both locally and overseas is crucial.

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.

Regulatory Crime FAQ

How can you define a regulatory offence?

A

Your company performs what is regarded as a legal offence through failure to meet with government regulations. Regulatory violations usually are the result of professional negligence since they typically feature a party that fails to comply with the legal standards in a particular industry. That is why they are typically in a group of their own; as in most situations, no real harm is done to another person, but a regulation to safeguard the public has been broken.

Why are there regulations in every business?

A

Regulations are there to provide companies with an ethical framework to maintain reasonable requirements are upheld across all sectors; such as commerce, health and safety, and education. The government has introduced a range of regulatory bodies to promote good practise throughout a particular company in order to impose regulations. The Food Standards Agency, the Government agency tasked with defending public health in regards to food products, is one indication of this. Although managing government bureaucracy may be somewhat time-consuming for some companies, sanctions can be serious for those who fail to comply: from heavy fines to jail terms.

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

A

Whether you are planning to plead guilty or not guilty, it is important to hire a defence solicitor to protect your rights. It's never a good idea to represent yourself in court since the prosecutor seeks to bring forward the harshest penalties possible. Our solicitors can help you avoid harsh penalties or even reduce/eliminate your charges, where possible.

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

A

The consequences that you might receive for a regulatory conviction will depend on the circumstances underlying the crime, and each case will be assessed separately before a decision is reached. But, as an example, an unlimited fine could be enforced on your company, or even a jail sentence of up to six months for a severe Trading Standards breach. It is worth noting that people within a business can be held personally responsible for offences committed by an organisation, while as a separate legal entity, the company faces yet another charge.
