Regulatory solicitors


Regulations set by statute, and the government agencies established to enforce them, affect every industry and business activity in the UK. Regulatory solicitors are experts in established regulatory frameworks, whether industry specific or applicable to all business activity. Many regulatory solicitors are specialised in regulations established in the fields of environmental law, planning and highways, wind energy law, and road transport law.

A major area of expertise for regulatory solicitors is business crime. Business crime can be committed by individuals or organisations. There are a number of government regulatory bodies who exist to prevent and punish business crime, for example the Financial Services Authority (FSA), the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), and the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). Business crime occurs when individuals, or whole organisations, exploit their positions to make money illegally. These crimes include: 

  • Money laundering
  • Copyright theft
  • Insider trading
  • Corruption
  • Cartels and price fixing

Regulatory solicitors can protect both you and your business. They can take preventative measures to minimise the risk of a regulatory breach, for example by audit and risk management. They can also help in the event of a regulatory investigation, including crisis management and court proceedings.

If you believe you have committed a regulatory offence, or you are aware of a regulatory breach, you should consult a specialist solicitor as soon as possible to minimise your potential liability. Regulatory breaches are taken seriously and can lead to prosecution, conviction and sanctions.
