Regulatory offences and investigations

Our approach

We offer cost-effective, practical and expert advice. Our aim is to conclude cases successfully before they reach court, if possible. However, we also have the expertise to handle long and complex contested matters. Acting from the outset in a case (notification of investigation), we can advise clients on how to proceed in order to reduce the likelihood of prosecution. 

Our team

Our team has over twenty years' experience and is acknowledged as one of the UK's leaders in the field. Peter Cadman, John Gould and Matt Bosworth are highly rated in legal directories. Members of our team hold rights of audience in the higher courts and can represent clients in the High Court, streamlining processes and reducing costs for clients

Our experts are commended in The Legal 500 (2023) for their "commercial experience and knowledge of regulatory law". Sources also praised the team: "a young and very committed group of highly determined and intelligent lawyers. Fantastic to work with."

Charging information

Charges are usually based on our hourly rates plus administrative charges and disbursements. We will provide you with an initial estimate of your likely legal costs and will update this as your requirements or the circumstances of the work change.

If you instruct us on a volume of work and/or can offer us a fixed term contract we may be able to offer discounted hourly rates.

We would be pleased to discuss your requirements free of charge and tailor a costs proposal accordingly.
