business crime & regulatory



Our team of regulatory lawyers is drawn from across our various disciplines in recognition of the fact that there is often an overlap between criminal and civil litigation, and because of the often specialised nature of the individual proceedings.

We represent individuals and businesses being investigated by regulatory bodies such as:

  • Local Authorities
  • Trading Standards
  • Department of Business Innovation and Skills
  • Financial Services Authority
  • Solicitors Regulation Authority
  • Environment Agency
  • Health and Safety Executive
  • Office of Fair Trading
  • HM Revenue and Customs
  • The Insolvency Service
  • The Competition Commission
  • British Horseracing Authority

We will deal with all matters from investigation to trial, and will ensure that you receive expert representation from our experienced team of regulatory lawyers.

Regulatory matters are supervised by John Smitheman. Those regulatory matters falling within the remit of the Business Crime Department are supervised by Ben Henry.
