Our committed team of regulatory solicitors are highly experienced and understand the confusion, distress and disruption caused by a Trading Standards investigation or prosecution.
Trading Standards & Compliance
If you are facing an investigation or prosecution in regard to trading standards, we understand that often the complex legislation can be overwhelming, especially if you believe that this is a false accusation. The detrimental effect on you and your business can be wide-reaching.
You may be a retailer, a distributor, a manufacturer or another party to the investigation and in all circumstances, it is crucial to obtain expert legal advice. You may not be aware of what triggered the investigation; this could be through a complaint made by a member of the public or a mystery test purchase. That is little comfort when facing these proceedings. You need to know that your rights are protected. Your local Trading Standards officers will have an active interest in these areas:
- Consumer Rights
- Counterfeit Goods
- The Sale of Age-Restricted Products
- Food Safety
- Fair Trading
- Faulty workmanship
- Weights and Measures
- Animal Welfare
- Food Labelling and Descriptions
- Distance selling regulations
