Corporate and Regulatory Defence Solicitors Haverfordwest

Government regulations are constantly changing, affecting different industries and possibly leaving them feeling constrained in the ways they can and cannot work. As a result, other companies and businesses get entangled and are unknowingly penalised by the new laws. The resources and time spent trying to comply with new laws and regulations are very high, so once you’ve been convicted of an infringement, it’s difficult to defend yourself. It is, therefore, crucial to have a local team of regulatory defence solicitors who can defend you both locally and overseas.

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.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Regulatory Crime FAQs

How can you define a regulatory offence?

A

By failing to meet with government regulations, the business performs what is called a legal offence. Regulatory violations are usually the result of professional negligence since they typically involve a party who fails to meet 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 there has been a breach of a regulation to protect the public.

Why are there regulations in every business?

A

There are regulations to provide an ethical framework for businesses to maintain reasonable standards across all sectors; such as finance, health and safety, and education. To enforce regulations, the government has introduced a number of regulatory bodies to promote good practise throughout a particular company. Another example of this is the Food Standards Agency, the government agency responsible for defending public health in regards to food products. Although some businesses can consider it somewhat time-consuming to handle government bureaucracy, sanctions can be serious for those who fail to comply: from heavy fines to prison terms.

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

A

It is important to hire a defence solicitor to protect your rights, whether you intend to plead guilty or not. Representing yourself in court is never a good idea since the prosecutor seeks to bring forward the harshest possible penalties. Our solicitors may help you avoid unfair fines or even reduce/eliminate the fees, if possible.

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

A

The consequences for a regulatory conviction you might receive may depend on the circumstances underlying the offence, and each case will be assessed individually before a decision is reached. But, as an alternative, the business could have an unlimited penalty enforced or even a prison sentence of up to six months for a serious violation of Trading Standards breach. It is worth noting that employees in a business can be held personally liable for crimes committed by an organisation, while the firm faces yet another charge as a separate legal entity.
