litigation-accident-report-form

Our team understands the increasingly complex nature of health and safety advice, regulations, investigations and prosecutions, and aims to work closely with you, as an education provider, to provide you with reliable advice and support.

Our proactive risk management advice includes issues surrounding the new corporate manslaughter legislation and other specific health & safety risks. As well as non-fatal investigations we also advise on fatal accident and Health & Safety Executive investigations including corporate manslaughter investigations incorporating advice upon investigative process, interview under caution, inquests and prosecution. We advise on fatal accident cases including deaths upon school premises and local authority premises as well as issues arising from a wide range of risks including workplace transport, maintenance of equipment and property, and Legionella.

We are experts in defending regulatory prosecutions, advising on complex regulations and managing police investigations which includes advising on police powers generally. We also represent clients during investigation, attendance at inquests and in connection with any subsequent prosecution.
