Our experienced regulatory team fully understand the confusion and disruption that can arise as a result of a Trading Standards investigation. This is an area where specialist legal advice is essential and no company be they large or small should contemplate dealing with these matters without expert advice.
The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs) represented a comprehensive attempt to address unfair business-to-consumer commercial practices. Recent amendments to sentencing powers and prosecution policies have only extended the range of this area of law.
Both companies and individuals are at risk, and increasingly prosecution teams identify Directors as the focus of their enquiries with the objective of securing high value confiscation orders.
Our Trading Standards specialists deal with the full range of cases from minor product deficiencies to investigations alleging organised unfair commercial practices. We believe strongly that continuity of service provides the most effective method of representation. Understanding your business allows us to more properly defend your position when faced with these challenging proceedings.
Contact Mike Warren or a member of the regulatory team for an initial consultation.
