The daily life of commerce involves an ever increasing degree of statutory regulation creating pitfalls which can lead to criminal and civil liability, not only for a company but for its directors and senior managers.

How a business looks after the health & safety of its employees, impacts upon the environment, deals with consumers, advertises, transports and ensures the safety of its products are but a sample of the areas in which all businesses are subject to statutory regulation.

Experience and expertise

Rollits' regulatory defence team has many years of experience defending our clients subjected to investigation and prosecution.

Our lawyers are resourceful (so that if there is a defence, we will find it and exploit it to your best advantage), robust (so as to command the respect of investigators and be in a better position to negotiate with them) and, above all, effective.

We can guide and help your business through the investigation process and, where necessary, provide a skilled and robust defence at any trial.

We do, however, believe that 'prevention is better than cure' and can also assist your business with the implementation of policies and due diligence systems designed to ensure regulatory compliance.
