The law is my passion…
Health and safety and environment law has always intrigued me. I have immense empathy for business owners and company directors facing the everyday challenges of complying with health and safety and environment regulations whilst achieving sales and growth targets.
The financial and reputational costs of a health and safety or environment law prosecution can be catastrophic. Investors and organisations tendering for work will normally insist on full disclosure of any breaches. Therefore, my focus is always on protecting your best interests from the very beginning of an incident.
As a health and safety and environment lawyer based in London, I can move quickly around the country to provide an emergency response if a health and safety or environment law breach occurs on your premises. The key to a successful outcome in any legal matter is to swiftly gather your advisors so they can sift through the available evidence and build a robust defence case. My starting objective is to avoid prosecution occurring at all; however, if court action proves inevitable, you can be confident that I will have prepared from the outset of the incident.
Having advised and represented both large and small organisations with HSE investigations, I understand how easy it can be to feel confused and nervous when answering questions etc. By instructing me, you can be assured that I will be at your side and diligently represent you throughout informal and formal interviews. You will never need to worry about inadvertently saying something against you and your organisation’s best interests.
When it comes to appealing Improvement, Prohibition, and Fee For Intervention Notices, I will tenaciously fight your corner, creating expert briefs and arguments to support your position and achieve your desired result.
In addition to my health and safety and environment law practice, I am regularly instructed on other criminal defence matters, namely fraud, money-laundering offences, and FCA/SFO investigations. I have also worked on many high-profile terrorism cases.
Outside of practising law, I love motorsport, particularly Formula One. In my spare time, I advise and support the W Series the world’s first female motorsport competition. I also enjoy cycling, reading about ancient history, mountain climbing and spending precious time with wife and children.
