Brunskill offers a comprehensive service to companies, directors and senior managers who are investigated for offences under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, other regulatory offences and corporate manslaughter.
We can give expert advice to clients on their rights and duties during a Health and Safety Executive or Environment Agency investigation. We will attend any interviews and give guidance on the powers of inspectors under the Health and Safety at Work act and the Police and Criminal Evidence Act. We will also negotiate with the prosecutor in order to persuade them not to prosecute if the circumstances permit.
If a case does progress to prosecution, we provide a continuous service throughout any magistrates and crown court proceedings. We are a specialist criminal litigation firm and we have a wealth of experience in defending serious and complex prosecutions of all types.
