We give expert commercial advice on health and safety issues
Striking the right balance between prevention and cure is a key part of our health and safety practice. Our solicitors help clients distinguish serious risks from those that are less threatening, and advise them on how to deal with both in a commercially effective way.
The Legal 500 ranks us as one of the best health and safety firms in the UK, praising our "skill in helping clients interpret and implement legislation". But our broader aim is always to help our clients achieve best practice while treading a sensible path between safety and business risk.
We provide practical advice on the daily running of businesses – anticipating and avoiding problems without going over-the-top. We supply training and updates, and draft strategic policies.
We also draft procedures to avoid accidents, and to minimise the damage to a company and its directors if an accident occurs.
When an accident does happen, we work with our clients on managing everything from routine regulatory investigations to crisis management and corporate manslaughter cases.
We guide them on the preparation and confidentiality of documents in investigations, which is critical if corporate risk and personal risk are to be properly managed.
Above all, we make sure we give them the level of support that they need.
