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

Failing to comply with government regulations, a business performs what is known as a legal offence. Regulatory infringements are usually the result of professional incompetence, as they usually involve a party who fails to comply with 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 public protection regulation.

Why are there regulations in every business?

A

Regulations are in place to provide an ethical framework for companies to maintain reasonable standards across all industries, such as finance health and safety, and education. To enforce the regulations the government has set up a range of regulatory bodies to promote good practise across a particular company. Another indication of this is the Food Standards Service, the government agency responsible for defending public health in relation to food products. Although some companies might find it somewhat time-consuming to manage government bureaucracy, penalties can be severe 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 necessary to employ a defence solicitor to protect your rights, whether you plan to plead guilty or not. Representing yourself in court is never a good idea, as the prosecutor seeks to impose the harshest possible penalties. Your solicitor can help you avoid excessive sanctions or even reduce / eliminate charges, if necessary.

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

A

The implications for a legal conviction that you may have can depend on the circumstances surrounding the crime, each situation will be reviewed separately before a decision is taken. As an option, an indefinite fine may be imposed or even a prison term lasting up to six months, for a severe breach of the Trading Standards. It is worth noting that employees in a company can be held personally liable for crimes committed by an individual, while the business fights yet another claim as a separate legal entity.
