I am head of Bevan Brittan's litigation; advisory and regulatory ...
Bevan Brittan specialises in guiding organisations through some of the most demanding compliance legislation in the world. The UK's compliance regime requires our private and public sector clients to comply with a multitude of regulations, including those designed to help prevent bribery, compete on a level playing field, protect health and safety, the environment and personal data.
Our work is broad-ranging, covering advice on statutory powers and functions, policies and rule-setting. We also advise at the sharp end on enforcement, including regulatory prosecutions and defending challenges to regulatory decisions.
Having in place stagnant policies will not be enough: businesses need to cultivate a commitment to compliance from the top down which can quickly adapt to new risks in a changing environment. Those who work for you and work with you should know the standards which you expect them to meet.
We understand the burden that regulation and compliance legislation places on our clients across all sectors. Our aim is to provide you with advice, internal training and policies which are easy to understand and quick to implement and adapt. When things do go wrong, we are quick to intervene, implement a strategy and robustly defend our client's position during subsequent investigations or prosecutions.
Our team of Criminal Regulatory experts have vast experience in advising clients in the private and public sectors on all aspects of compliance, enforcement and litigation.
From Health & Safety and Environmental law to Bribery, Fraud and Product Safety, our lawyers provide advice across the full spectrum of Criminal Regulatory issues. We advise proactively on compliance issues, internal investigations, procedures, policies and we deliver training; as well as helping you to respond quickly and appropriately to enforcement action, prosecution and any associated litigation.
Our first-hand experience gives us a real, practical insight in to how best to help you reduce the commercial and reputational risks within your business and deal with the unexpected.
