COVID-19 - We are open for business and here to help

If you find yourself the subject of a health and safety improvement notice issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority, getting the advice of a solicitor experienced in handling cases that involve regulatory and compliance matters is essential. The consequence of breaching an improvement notice are extremely serious, being a criminal offence which can attract significant fines or up to six-months imprisonment for matters dealt with in the Magistrates Court. With an enviable reputation for advocacy and litigation skills, our Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers are excellently placed to conduct the most robust defence should you be accused of breaching a health and safety improvement notice.
An improvement notice will be issued if inspectors believe that an organisation is in contravention of health and safety law, or has contravened health and safety law in a way that may be repeated or continued. These notices offer individuals and businesses the opportunity to correct any issues identified by inspectors. If you believe that a notice has been unfairly issued, Wilford Smith’s Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors will lodge an appeal to have the enforcement notice overturned, or to have the terms of it varied in such circumstances. We can provide you with clear, straight-forward and jargon-free advice, taking an exceptionally strategic and results-driven approach to ensure the best result for you.
