The solicitors at Wilford Smith, specialising in all matters concerning health and safety regulation compliance, can provide expert legal support and guidance should you find yourself accused of committing an offence under the Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Act 2007. A charge of corporate manslaughter may result if an organisation is suspected of being liable for a death as a consequence of a gross breach of a duty of care. Our lawyers can take instruction from the earliest stage of any investigation, providing you with a service that is exceptionally strategic and results driven. A serious workplace accident is always a traumatic experience for those involved, but Wilford Smith’s experienced Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors will ensure that you receive clear, straight-forward advice at this particularly challenging time.
The consequences of a corporate manslaughter conviction are extremely serious, with organisations and companies facing unlimited fines, and individuals facing custodial sentences. The police may carry out arrests in order to further their investigation, while the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has the power of entry and investigators equipped with specialist, industry-specific knowledge. The Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers at Wilford Smith have an enviable reputation for providing an exceptionally strategic service for our clients in corporate manslaughter investigations, with a proven track record in advocacy and litigation should your case proceed to court.
