When to Appoint a Regulatory Solicitor
All business sectors require some aspect of regulation and compliance and with legal duties under a specific regulatory framework, based on the business sector your company operates within, these regulations are monitored and enforced by specific regulatory agencies.
Businesses and business owners are not always aware that if something goes wrong and regulations have not been complied with, the regulatory agencies have extensive powers to investigate the business, company directors and employees of the companies that were working at the relevant time. Regulatory agencies investigate potential breaches in a similar way to a criminal investigation by the police. In certain circumstances regulators also have the power to issue criminal prosecutions against the company or any key individuals working within the business that may be responsible. Over the past few years there has been a significant increase in directors and employees facing regulatory prosecutions for breaching regulatory requirements. If you or your business is facing a regulatory investigation or prosecution you should seek urgent advice from one of our solicitors, as early advice can significantly increase the prospect of a successful outcome.

Under Investigation by Your Regulator
If your regulator forms the opinion that you or your business has breached the law, it will usually write to the Company Secretary or a Company Director at the registered office to invite the company to attend a PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984) Interview Under Caution. If you have been called to a PACE interview, you should seek and secure expert legal representation from one of our solicitors well in advance of attending the interview, as early legal advice can significantly improve the chances in securing a successful result in your case. A regulatory agency may also visit you or your business to:
- Inspect the premises
- Collect evidence
- Ask questions
- Serve Improvement Notices / Prohibition Notices
We recommend that you secure a regulatory law solicitor if any of the above occurs as there is a strong likelihood of the matter being escalated.
