Regulatory Law

From health and safety prosecutions to fatal accident inquiries, we have the expertise you are looking for.

Moir and Sweeney’s commercially minded team are uniquely positioned to provide advice and representation in a spectrum of regulatory law matters.

We are always available 24 hours, 7 days a week to offer advice in connection with health and safety prosecutions, deaths in the workplace, environmental prosecutions, matters under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 or other statutory prosecutions.

Over the past 30 years, we have built a reputation as being the firm of choice instructed by private individuals and Directors of Limited Companies on behalf of companies facing investigation or prosecution by SEPA and other reporting bodies.

We offer a service whereby we can attend at a site at very short notice if investigators are on site. We can also secure the attendance of the firm’s partners Ian Moir and/or Paul Sweeney immediately in the event of a serious accident in the workplace.

Directors should be aware of the potential for prosecution for corporate manslaughter. We can advise in relation to this, as well as areas such as proceeds of crime proceedings arising out of any conviction for regulatory breaches.

If you understand that your company may be under suspicion you should contact us immediately. Our expert team’s proactive approach ensures that we liaise with the relevant agencies and make representations on your behalf with a view to avoiding prosecution. If a prosecution takes place, we have the skills and capacity to deal with it in-house. We also have an excellent network of counsel we can instruct where appropriate.
