Our experience in Criminal Litigation extends to a variety of specialist areas of criminal prosecutions. Through our breadth of experience THB continue to provide up-to-date specialist advice in these areas.
Post Office Prosecutions
THB can provide advice and representation in prosecutions against employees and sub-postmasters for Post Office prosecutions for alleged theft and fraudulent activity.
Prosecutions are often accounted for through unexplained losses that cannot be by sub-postmasters accused of these offences.
THB provide representation to those facing investigation and prosecution and in some circumstances may be able to assist in the negotiating with the Post Office as to an appropriate repayment plan.
Environmental Law Advice and Representation
THB can provide practical legal advice in respect of Environmental Law to both businesses and individuals where the penalties for breach include substantial fines, suspension or revocation of a licence and even imprisonment.
THB provide specialist advice on the legislation within the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000
We can assist in relation to advice for companies involved in an investigation from the Environment Agency or any enforcing authority.
Business Innovation and Skills Prosecutions
The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (previously known as the Department of Trade and Industry) prosecute a variety of criminal offences including fraudulent trading; undischarged bankruptcy offences; breaches of disqualification orders; failure to keep proper accounting records.
During a criminal investigation individuals are frequently invited to attend a formal interview under caution. THB can provide specialist legal advice prior to making a decision regarding attending interview.
Health and Safety Law
General duties of employees and employers are contained within the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. In addition to these general duties there are a wealth of regulations that provide for the governing of particular industries.
Enforcement Notices under Section 21 and Section 22 of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 can be issued by an inspector of the HSE where an Inspector is of the opinion that a person is contravening one or more of the relevant statutory provisions; or has contravened one or more of those provisions in circumstances that make it likely that the contravention will continue or be repeated or if certain activities are continued they will involve risk of serious personal injury.
A breach of or a failure to comply with these notices is a criminal offence
Not all investigations by the various enforcing authorities will lead to prosecution. However THB can provide specialist advice at the earliest stage.
If you require specialist assitance whether as an individual, a corporate entity or an enforcing authority then contact our specialist team of Advocates.
