We appreciate that the need for advice and assistance can be urgent and at short notice. We operate a 24/7 service via our Rapid Response Number 07989 521210.
We are available to attend the scene of the accident, provide advice and assistance at interviews under caution and provide representation before the Court in order to defend any prosecution.
Early expert, advice and assistance is usually imperative in such cases in order to protect the business and individuals from the outset. This is particularly important considering that offences of this type, if proven, can result in extremely heavy fines, significant reputational damage and custodial sentences.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 covers general fire safety in England & Wales. The legislation places a considerable burden on individuals to maintain appropriate records, conduct appropriate fire risk assessments, ensure all appropriate fire precautions are taken and maintain and check fire fighting and fire detection equipment.
Failure to comply with the legislation can be deemed a criminal offence in certain circumstances. If the fire authorities deem that the breaches of the legislation are serious, this can result in both individuals and companies/organisations being subjected to a criminal prosecution.
We are able to guide individuals and organisations through the entire process of an investigation/prosecution while maintaining a dialogue with the investigating authorities and safeguarding the interests of our clients at each stage in the procedure.
We welcome new enquiries by telephone or email and we are happy to provide an initial no obligation consultation to explore the issues in your case and to provide an assessment of what we can do to assist you.
